Earnscleugh Station – A K Campbell

Earnscleugh Shed DayEarnscleugh was the first stud in NZ to use breeding values (1988) and in 2000 our data was shifted to Merino Select in Australia.

We believe that figures and phenotype can be combined and to this end we employ an outside classer to make sure we don't get off track. Since 2000 our emphasis has been to increase the Poll side of our operation with selection aimed at producing a high fertility, moderate framed, dual purpose Merino.
