140149 is truly a ‘freak’ Merino sire – a 120175 son out of a top ‘Wool Productive’ ewe, whose daughters are recognisable for their outstanding body growth rates, length of body, condition score and barrel, and who cut huge fleece weights of deeply crimped, bright white fine wool, with enormous staple length. He is of a Frame Productive joining type.

140149 is a national trait leader for post-weaning, yearling, hogget and carcass weights, for clean fleece weight (post-weaning, yearling, hogget and adult), staple length, and scrotal circumference. He is the heaviest cutting Merino sire in MerinoSelect with CTSE data, and yet is positive for Yearling Eye Muscle Depth and Fat!
