2011 sire selection        





The 2011 selection was a difficult task due to the extensive use of quality genetics that reflect the requirements of the Prime Lamb industry. On top of this was the consideration given to the results of DNA testing that has or will be conducted on all our sires we retain.

At this stage several young sires will be retained across some sire lines to enable better use of syndicate joining using the same breeding lines.

There are plenty of sires listed here and they will be used selectively in a synchronised joining program. Few if any older sires will be used for next years joining.

Langley Heights 100160 sire line

PENDARRA 119492     HrF 142346

Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Is the first ram from this group to be retained due to his exceptional growth as a young lamb and outstanding performance figures. At every inspection of the young lambs and at scanning, this young sire caught the eye and produced exceptional scan data. Has been selected in the SuperWhite program. Pity about his lack of cooperation with photographs but 119492 is the ram at the back on the left of the top group photo


PENDARRA 119617   HrF 142364

Pedigree & ASBV indexes 

Very stylish Langley Heights 160 son with good carcase depth and structure. Again outstanding performance figures with plenty of muscle and growth. DNA testing for meat eating quality shows this sire to fit well into our objectives to produce tender lamb with high levels of intra muscular fat. We could retain any of the 5 LH160 sons we have selected but we feel these 2 will serve our program best.     


South West Genetics 100002 sire line

PENDARRA 119611    HrF 141499

Pedigree & ASBV indexes

One risk of using a sire that contains a mix of genes from several breeds is variation and we certainly got that using the SWG 02 ram. However we did manage to produce some outstanding young sires with do ability and muscle within a very compact and easy care frame. 9611 is a great example of just what we were hoping to produce from these genetics. Great carcase and structure along with a silky soft type and very clean points. 9611 is from a set of quads and has grown well despite the competition from his siblings. Will be used as a single joining as well as in a syndicate.


PENDARRA 119511    HrF 142507

Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Pedigree and muscling picks this young sire. Pendarra 3050 and GP 3756 on the dam side of the pedigree and outstanding performance data will help to retain him here at Pendarra. The SWG progeny all have very sound structure and compact carcase with plenty of muscling so fit very well into our breeding program. Pendarra 119338 may be added to this selection if not sold for a similar reason. The pedigree of both 9511 and 9338 are exceptional. See Rams for Sale link

PENDARRA 119581    HrF 142387

Pedigree & ASBV indexes

You would have thought we would not be wanting another 3050 son to use in our team and although we have used 3050 to benchmark in previous years we have resisted using another of his sons. However! this young ram is too good to let go. Great carcase depth and style, we will definitely find some ewes that will click with him. The carcase on this young sire in identical to 3050.


PENDARRA 119486     HrF 142336

Pedigree & ASBV indexes

A very interesting son of 086802 and not what we have been used to getting from him. This bloke has more carcase than we have seen for quite some time and is probably the heaviest of the rams we are retaining. Great strength and bone and a great frame packed with muscle, I am sure we will find a place for him in our breeding program.




Pendarra 075630 sire line

PENDARRA 119329   HrF 142354 

Pedigree & ASBV indexes


The 5630 line of breeding will play an important role in what we and the industry hope to achieve, that is put high growth and muscling in a sheep that has exceptional meat eating quality. It is therefore lucky that this year we have some exceptional progeny from this sire and we will more than likely retain 3 sons, all with special attributes. This bloke is very similar in carcase to119581 above with good carcase volume and excellent structure.


PENDARRA 119344    HrF 142513 

Pedigree & ASBV indexes

A double 3050 cross this bloke is all class. An exception White Suffolk type sire and plenty of carcase with plenty of presence. A different type of ram to the other 5630 sons we are retaining at this stage but he will retain his spot. Pleased this bloke is not a Hypo carrier, especially given that 3050 is on both sides of the pedigree.





Pedigree & ASBV indexes

This Farrer 100170 son is very similar in carcase attributes to 119486 in that he has immense bulk of muscle on a very strong frame. We had been hoping for just such a sire from the Farrer 170 sire so he will fit our breeding objectives perfectly. He has DNA tested fairly good for meat eating quality with an improvement for lean meat yield so will be useful to build on that area of carcase attributes.

PENDARRA 119147    HrF 140994

Pedigree & ASBV indexes

This Pendarra 097551 son could well be one of the best young sires we have, according to DNA testing he is miles ahead of where he currently sits in the data base. All class and style with a well balanced distribution of muscle with exceptional loin length. We sold 7551 before we dropped progeny on the ground so to see this bloke (and another not far behind him) come along was stroke of good fortune. He is arguably better than his sire, the way it should work.


Pedigree & ASBV indexes

A son from Woolumbool 104817 which we used as part of the SuperWhite allocation. Another heavy carcase sire with great softness which may account for the fact that he is great for tenderness according to his DNA results. Cannot fault any part of this sire and look forward to progeny.



Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Classy looking ram by the Supreme All Breeds Champion Ram at Adelaide Royal 2010 out of an outstanding carcase ewe purchased at the Detpa Grove 2011 mated ewe sale. Will provide an outcross for our breeding program and important linkages to other seedstock producers who have used Anden 090168.


Pedigree & ASBV indexes

Another handy ram resulting from the purchase of ewes at the 2011 DG mated ewe sale. A son of CONCORDE, (DG 100205), from a ewe that includes ACC050627, this sire has plenty of caracse and once again provides an outcross and benchmarking for our genetics.

The 2 rams from Detpa Grove ewes will provide us with an opportunity to introduce new lines of genetics into our program and supplement the gains we have made within our breeding program as well as providing an important benchmarking opportunity.



If you are interested in semen from any of these sires, let us know. Semen is able to be purchased in mixed or single packages at $1200/30 ewe doses. We will have semen collected from just a few of these sires but are more than happy to collect any of these sires on order, provided enough time is allowed.

If you require any more information on any of these rams please Contact Us.
