Fibre test results look good

Another good year for fibre testing at Waratah Flats as our annual shearing mid-side samples continue to move downwards with lower micron levels trending towards achieving our overall breeding goals.

All our adults – males and females (4 to 8 years) averaged 19.2 microns

All our intermediates (1 to 2 years) averaged 16.9 microns

And all our juniors (9 to 12 months) averaged 15.2 microns

For the first time over 50% of our juniors recorded mid-side samples of 14.5 microns or lower, with our best youngster being WF Imperial Wizard at spot on 13 microns. While the average Standard Deviation (SD) coming in at 2.6 across the age group.
