B+LNZ Genetics Central Progeny Test: First to Market Field Day

With support from our partners at Progressive Meats Ltd, Horizon Farming and FMG, B+LNZ Genetics will be hosting a field day for the Terminal Sire Sheep Progeny Test at Maraetotara Farm.

Lambs born on the Hawke’s Bay property this spring have sires from 22 different breeding operations. Progeny are monitored for growth rate, before being processed and measured for eating quality and yield through Progressive Meats’ grading system.

Head along to see progeny first hand and hear the latest results.

Barbecue and refreshments supplied.
