Key research into Merino genetics

The Trangie Agricultural Research Centre has a long history of research in sheep genetics and has contributed substantially to the understanding of the genetic characteristics of Merino sheep. Some 80% of Merino rams sold in NSW, and 60% nationally, are now derived from studs that use selection indexes in their breeding programs. Long term research programs at Trangie have made a major contribution to the development of these indexes.
