Peter Westblade Memorial Merino Challenge 2016-2018
The PWMMC is a two-year genetic evaluation measuring wool, meat and growth traits of entrant’s individual wethers.
Over the duration of the PWMMC more than 60,000 individual records to be collected, analysed and reported. This information provides both the entrants and the wider Merino sheep industry with tools to accurately determine the genetic merit of a range of traits affecting profitability.
The PWMMC has two components consisting of a Meat Challenge and Wool Challenge. The Meat Challenge measures commercially relevant carcase and meat traits under feedlot conditions. The Wool Challenge wethers are run on pasture and analysed over two years.
