Glenlea Park Poll Merino Stud

 

GP338 Semen Sire/ Stud Reserve

New Stud Sire GP 140338 shorn recently cut 7.4kgs in 5months and 1 week.

Above: GP 140338 recently shorn cut 7.4kgs in 5 months and 1 week.  He has now cut 17.5 kgs in the past 11 months and 1 week.  He and his fleece will be on display at our 2015 on property ram sale.

Our new sire, GP140338, is pictured above and below.  ET (embryo transfer) bred, he is quite different to anything we have produced in the past.  He is quite thick, but not tight and with good staple length.  His wool is of the highest quality, white and deeply crimped and aligned.  He cut 10.1kg of wool in 6 months as a ram lamb ($85 worth).  He is deep barreled, has correct structure and his muzzle is silky and pure.  GP338 has a quiet and gentle temperament and we look forward to seeing his impact on our stud.  Semen available ($40/dose, minimum 50 doses.)
