2005 selection



Some of the young sires below were used as ram lambs, others are selections for next years joining. These 10 young sires are all muscle and are the top selections from our 2005 lamb drop. All have been tested in our Feed Efficiency trial.

The ASBV indexes are mid parent only as, due to severe drought, no scanning was done. The values shown are mid parent influenced slightly by birth weight, but as all these sires were well above average for weight and visual muscle at selection, have good linkages from accurate sires, their ASBV indexes will be higher than those shown.




Pendarra 3509/05                  Pedigree & ASBV indexes

This Pendarra 2264/03 son has caught the eye of some good judges and performed well in the feed conversion trial. Out of a very good Leahcim 85 ewe, this young sire will provide the next breeding phase for our 2264 line. A very alert and well put together ram with great muscling.


Pendarra 3513/05                   Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Here he is!

This ram is the young sire that finished on top of the feed conversion trial. A son of Pendarra 3050/04, I doubt we have ever seen a ram with this amount of muscle. This ram is so...ooo thick and deep, he will be used selectively in next years joining. Despite his thick frame, he is a very smooth ram and is very mobile and alert. There is something special about this very different young sire and time will tell just where his genetics take the breed.

Could he be the +5 for muscle we have been looking for, he definitely looks like it?



Pendarra 3587/05                   Pedigree & ASBV indexes

This young sire is all class and has been retained to provide an outcross and for use as a special purpose sire. A grandson of the very high muscle sire, Warburn 20/02, this ram has a great smooth carcase, good suffolk type with a silky covering, and a great pedigree being out of a Detpa Grove 100/99, "Supreme", daughter. This stylish young sire that is very correct in all areas is one we will watch with interest.





Pendarra 3685/05                Pedigree & ASBV indexes     

This young sire is from the Anna Villa 119/99 line and has great hindquarter muscling on a substantial frame. Sired by an impressive ram lamb that we showed with some success last year, this bloke is one of our top picks from the 2005 selection and will get plenty of use next year. He is very clean and has a great smooth carcase shape, we are looking forward to progeny from this young sire as he promises to be a very safe sire to use.


Pendarra 3708/05                   Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Sonning 331/02 has produced plenty of outstanding progeny over the last few years within the White Suffolk breed and this bloke could be one of the best. A very interesting cross from a Penrise 1/00, "1 O'Clock" daughter, this massive ram has plenty of style and bone supporting a great carcase. He also finished in the top group on feed efficiency so will be an interesting sire to watch. One of our favourite sires from the 2005 selection.

Pendarra 3753/05                  Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Another Sonning 331 son that is a total outcross on the ewe side for our breeding program. From a Leahcim ewe that has produced plenty of good progeny, this young bloke has sire strength written all over him. A sire with an outstanding muscle pattern on a large frame, he has always been a standout in the 2005 drop lambs.

Pendarra 3808/05                   Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Anden 83/02 has been a sire that has been used with great success at Pendarra. This is just another good example of the type of sheep he has produced. A great muscle sheep with great commercial suitability, this fella is a different cross for us being from a very smart Penrise sired ewe. Pendarra 3050/04 has been an outstanding sire for us, this slightly different Anden 83/02 son promises the same.

Pendarra 3870/05                   Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Linden 4878/03 performed exceptionally well on feed conversion and we have been watching this young sire for some time. A great carcase sheep with excellent type, this sire finished near the top on feed conversion and has exceptional muscling. from a ewe out of our Yundara line, there is plenty of thickness and muscling on both sides of the pedigree.

Pendarra 3901/05                   Pedigree & ASBV indexes

An outstanding ram lamb that was used over ewe lambs this year and already has some impressive lambs on the ground. Showed a lot of promise early and has been kept as a backup ram. From one of the best ewes in the stud, this sire has good bone and carcase and has proven to be a very safe choice when used over ewe lambs. A Mount Ronan 572/03 son, this could be a sire line that gets plenty of use.


Pendarra 3909/05                   Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Look Out!

This bloke is all muscle on a huge frame. The best of our Mount Ronan 572/03 sons, this sire carries a huge carcase with smooth shape and bone. He, along with 3901/05, has been outstanding since day 1 and this line of breeding seem to have the do ability that we look for at Pendarra. This sire also provides a complete new line of breeding for us being from a Wesswood ewe which tracks back to Burwood "Titan". He is one of the top 4 from our 2005 selection and will get plenty of exercise.
