    Probreed sheep that are guaranteed to deliver genetic gain

    Why your next ram should be from us.

    Our sheep genetics business arose from a desire to challenge traditional farming beliefs by bringing the technology, our successes and know-how from the pig industry into the sheep industry. Our process incorporates the whole farm; where we optimise and adjust every element of our program to maximise performance in relation to your unique requirements and farming environment. Simply put, we don't rear our sheep, we rear your sheep, and we are so confident in our process that we guarantee you will achieve genetic gain.

    Collaborative - We love sharing what we do with our clients, relish their feedback and adjust our breeding programme accordingly. Because together we are better.
    Dedicated to data - Genetic gain comes from accurate data. That’s why every lamb has a full pedigree and is measured and assessed for all of the important traits.
    Innovate - We are always looking for ways to improve how we do things, whether it is in our breeding programs or our farming operation.

    A few words from one of our clients.

    “I’ve worked with the team behind ProBreed for the last 7 years and have seen improvements in flock fertility, scanning & weaning percentages as well as improved ewe maternal traits, milk availability, growth rates and controlled lamb birth weight. Our future direction will include their rams.”

    Guaranteed genetic gain.

    We’ve seen first-hand how genetics can transform the productivity and labour efficiency of a flock.

    And we are dedicated to bringing this genetic gain to our clients by supplying rams that get better every year. In fact, we are so confident in the performance of our sheep that we guarantee you will achieve genetic gain when working with us.

    Our sheep.

    We love breeding great sheep. Sheep that are not only great to read about but also great to look at and we know that although many things can be done with breeding values, there are a few things that can’t.

    Genetic gain isn’t just about the numbers; it’s also about improving the visual and structural attributes of the sheep year on year, as well. That’s why we physically class all of our sheep to keep improving the visual aspects along with the numbers. Our sheep do amazing things, year in, year out and we are consistently impressed with how well they turn grass into saleable products.

    We are breeding three distinct lines of sheep; each focused on making measurable genetic gain every year - that is our guarantee!

    High performance sheep grazing on a mound of fodder

    Primera

    Our terminal line is focused on producing a 18 to 25kg carcase with meat in the right places and the fat where it is needed.

    Early growth, carcase muscling and positive fat culminate in a lamb that can be turned off as a finished product early in the season.

    Our focus on marbling will keep lamb on the menu for years to come.

    Highlander

    The Highlander is our flagship breed. Maternal efficiency is the name of the game for these sheep.

    Moderate ewe weight, high early growth, high reproductive rate and low worms are just a few of the features of this unique ewe type.

    For the prime lamb specialist, this is the maternal line of choice.

    Highlander Plus.

    After more than three years investigating the potential to breed a Highlander with higher wool value, we are excited to launch our newest line of sheep; the Highlander Plus.

    We are combining the attributes of the Highlander with high-performance merino genetics and then improving wool quality over time.
