Rams have full health accreditations and performance figures
  • Property and flock attains OJD MN3 status
  • Brucellosis Accredited Free
  • Lambplan ASBV's

The entire Wingamin flock is performance recorded through Lambplan.
ALL animals have birth weights, weaning weights and post weaning weights recorded and are scanned at age 5-6 months for fat and eye muscle depth.
This gives us the highest standard of data quality and accuracy for animals at early post weaning age.

Lambplan doesn't measure PHENOTYPE. We do!

Here at Wingamin we also put huge emphasis on selecting for economically important traits that lambplan doesn't measure but can equate to more dollars in your pocket such as body length (length weighs - length pays), carcase composition (excellent muscling and thickness through the loin and hindquarter - the expensive cuts!) moderate to large frame size with excellent conformation and structural soundness for mobility and longevity, early maturity patterns with good do-ability, smooth, fine shoulders for easy lambing, good skins and short dense downs wool keeping lambs looking fresher for longer.

The difference is what you can see

All registered buyers who purchase rams will go into a prize draw to win EXTINOSAD
This prize is kindly donated by ELANCO

The prime lamb industry is still reliable and the focus of our breeding program remains on meeting high industry standards.
We've been breeding QUALITY White Suffolk rams for 31 years & offering them by auction on property at Karoonda for 23 years. That's breeding strength you can rely on!
The sale is full of progeny from our leading stud sires with the exceptional carcase conformation, shape, thickness, muscling and fast, early growth that the Wingamin stud is renowned for.
