Flock Health

Ella Matta Flock Health

To ensure that we maintain our disease free status we have kept a closed flock since 1999 with new genetics only being obtained through (frozen semen) artificial insemination.

All rams are:


Breeding for Worm Resistant Sheep

One of our main breeding aims at Ella Matta is for worm resistant sheep. We have been taking individual faecal samples from all stud lambs since 2001 with an aim to minimise drenching. Subsequently our flock is becoming increasingly more genetically resistant to worms.

Birth Weights

As part of our Lambplan recording program we check all of our stud lambs at birth and measure their weights. This data is very important as sheep with a good genetic birth weight (not too high or low) have better lambing ease and a significantly lower chance of lamb mortality.
