Macquarie Merino Lifetime Productivity Project Field Day

The Macquarie MLP FINAL Field Day will be held on Wednesday March 29 at NSW DPI’s Trangie Agricultural Research Centre. This will be the last chance to view the daughters of 31 industry sires that have been measured, classed, scored and joined through life. Ewes will be penned side by side within their sire and ewe bloodline groups. A great line up of speakers will discuss the impact of ewe type on sire results, compare MLP breeding values with ASBVs and outline the MLP analysis next steps. Pen side sire introductions will be preceded by a panel of classers that will outline classing in the MLP project. There will be plenty of time to inspect the ewes and the day will be followed by an industry dinner at the Narromine RSL.
