Part of the rebuilding of the Somerset Merino flock these young ewes have been bred from very good quality Western NSW bred sheep - plain body & open open face, 2 or 3 ewes give a Samm appearance however are merino bred for generations. Well grown for their age due to a fantastic 2016 winter, good medium to large frame, long body & deep barrel they carry a late Sept skin. The ewes will present in good strong forward to fresh condition. As mentioned the joining protocol involved a Faba bean ration 2 weeks prior to joining, teasers and a good % of top quality Kerin Poll Rams with additional supplement feed. Also to note the sheep have increased approx 6% in body weight (from 43.6kg to 46.3kg) since shearing until assessment - also throughout the joining period. There will be one ewe with a missing eye included - typically the ewe tilts her head slightly however has no other apparent side effects and is comparable on all other fronts.
