Our aim is to produce a Facial Eczema (FE) tolerant animal with a minimal requirement for drenching which exhibits a high growth rate. 32 years of selection for Facial Eczema tolerance, dosing at 0.6mg/kg and GGT testing all young stock in the face of high natural challenge means we have one of NZs most tolerant flocks. The ewe flock has been on a no drench policy since 2002. Lambs are on an extended drench interval with selection for those that can perform above average in the face of parasite challenge. We select for open faced, open breech sheep with high wool weights, and are targeting sound feet with resistance to scald and foot rot. Clients with a good representation of Nikau Coopworth genetics in their flocks routinely wean above 150 % from MA ewes and 100 % from hoggets.
Check out 'Our Rams' page for our ram selection list and sire summary. Rams sold at auction in November and also available on farm.
All rams presented for sale on Nov 7, 2016 have sold. Thank you to those who purchased rams on the day. Rams still available on farm. A select group of ram lambs will be available in early 2017.
