Rams for better lambs: Studs achieving excellence.

Rams for better lambs: Studs achieving excellence.

It is a big year for Janmac. Grant and Bryce Hausler and families of Janmac Poll Dorsets and White Suffolk studs, Goroke will celebrate their family’s 40th year of Poll Dorset breeding at their 2019 sale.

While they have been selling large and even drafts of rams to clients in western Victoria and the south east of South Australia over those 40 years, it is their achievements in the past few years that have come under much wider notice.

They again had another near-total clearance, selling 187 rams at their annual sale last October, a result that verifies the strong competition from commercial breeders seeking rams that are certainly performing and producing increased profit margins in their paddocks.

With bodyweights well over 100kg and up to the mid-130kg, they achieved an overall average of $1367,
