The Mumblebone breeding program produces stock that perform when conditions are tough. Extended drought periods throughout the Quilpie district are a great example of these tough conditions and we would like to share with all Merino breeders, the science behind how and why this works.
Please join us for a morning of casual “sheep talk” with two of the industry’s most exciting minds.
Smoko & Lunch will be provided thanks to Elders.

Muscle & Fat in a balanced Merino. What to select for and what to avoid when combining traits in a truely Modern Merino.
Questions – 12 noon
