Weaning Day at Adelong

 

The Adelong flock was established in 1970 and since that time, using the best Genetics available, a ruthless selection criteria, performance recording and DNA testing, we strive to breed sheep that are structurally sound, true to breed type, have good constitutions and excellent performance figures for growth, muscle, fat, fertility & survivability.

Our aim is to breed tough, easy doing sheep that have the ability to shift and thrive wherever they are used, both in New Zealand and around the world.

The 650 ewe flock is fully recorded with SIL and muscle scanned.

With the use of DNA testing of Foot Scores, we have sires & ewes in the flock with very good foot score figures.

Adelong sheep are shown at the Ellesmere & Canterbury Shows each year.

Since 2005, we have had our own on-farm Auction Sale, held on the 1st Wednesday of December annually, as well as selling privately on farm.

Adelong Stud are vendors at the North Island Stud Sale in Fielding & the Canterbury Stud Fair, selling 10-12 Stud Sires each year.

Semen, Embryos and Live Animals have been exported to Australia, Canada, England, Japan, The Philipines, China, USA, Brazil, Chile, Argentina & Uruguay.
