We use the Sheep Genetics Dual Purpose Plus Index to select our sheep. This index is
aimed at those producers whose majority sheep income comes from sheep sales. It is
for self-replacing merino flocks that do not keep their wethers and also join a portion
of their ewes to terminal sires for lamb production. The following table shows the
likely genetic response to 10 years of selection !
