Petali Genetics: Walcha Merino & White Suffolk breeder Martin Oppenheimer Looks to the Future

James Wagstaff, The Weekly Times, 12.7.17


Vale Herbert Oppenheimer 8.2.1930 – 1.5.2017


Future trends feature on Petali

“Martin Oppenheimer, Petali Poll Merinos principal, said there was plenty of demand for productive sheep that produced high-quality lamb & fibre. “There appears to be unlimited demand for sheep with more early growth, in both merino & terminal lambs. The lambs finish faster & require less feed. Fat & Muscle are more important for improving reproduction & now eating quality can be improved by selection for Shear Force & intra-muscular Fat. It’s a win-win.” Petali Poll Merinos has improved average ASBV Growth by 1.8kg, Fleece Weight by 4.3% plus Fat by 0.2mm in the past year.” Country Leader 9.1.17
