Honestly, we think 15024 could be a game changer.  He has a magnificent skin and cuts a rich, long, thick, white, beautifully marked fleece.  He's mid-sized with great conformation; square front and back, well up on his pasterns, with plenty of spring of rib.  He's well pedigreed, being out of one of our top ET ewes, sired by Lingy and with Charinga 119 as his granfather. We've got a name in mind for 15024, but it's not a name to be dished out lightly, so he needs a little more game time before it's bestowed upon him.  Watch this space.

Hawkins is a big boy with plenty of polish and pedigree, having been sired by the legendary Bindwarra 400, an all time Merino Superior Sire.  As a 5 y.o. he topped 140kg and still held his micron at 17.7.  His Balmoral progeny were +9% for adult clean fleece weight and +6.2kg for adult body weight.  He was the most valuable sire in the trial on the MP+ index and has an ASBV MP+ value of 172.  Hawkins is ideal for breeders looking to add bone, scale and cut whilst maintaining micron.

Connewarran "Harley"

Harley is long in the body and long in the staple.  Sired by  Willandra Desmond, a ram that time and again has put great scale into sheep, Harley carries outstanding carcass characteristics.  He also cuts a heavy, bold crimping, bright white wool.  Due to his exception scale and wool characteristics he is being used within the Connewarran Merino Stud and also by clients seeking to turn off wether lambs in high rainfall climates.  

  

Connewarran "Lingy"

Sire: Charinga 119

Lingy is not much to look at, but consistent, reliable, and a seasoned performer.  His specialty is sweetening wools, adding cut but reducing micron.  He has an amazing capacity to stamp staple length, alignment and nourishment into his progeny, and he loves doing it.  His libido is something to behold.
