A sheep that does it all – commercial wool production and great meat characteristics – is this year’s feature breed.
The Corriedale evolved in both Australia and New Zealand from the 1870s by selective breeding using pure Merino and Lincoln sheep.
With 125 years of breeding, today’s Corriedale – with its heavy carcasses and bright fleece - sits second behind the Merino in the international popularity rankings.
Add to that the fact that lambing exceeds 100%, wool cut is 7kg and more a year - with a yield of 75% - and the animals have a long life span.
