“We have been using Kelso genetics for approx. 16 years. We join Kelso rams to merino ewes to breed a XB ewe. We then join those XB ewe lambs to a Dorset ram to produce 2nd X lambs, which we supply to Woolworths and Coles. We have found that Kelso genetics gives a highly productive medium frame ewe with better wool traits than a 1st X ewe. The ewes are excellent mothers and capable of high lambing percentages.”



“We had three core objectives with making the change to Coota Kelso: to improve micron, to maintain fertility and fecundity and to have a smaller frame ewe with less DSE. We are really pleased with our Kelso merino cross ewes this year, their wool yields and micron is right where we were hoping it to be.”
