Chrome Sheep Studs have been breeding sheep for the commercial prime lamb producer for more than 10 years.   At Chrome we have a focus on breeding sheep which will produce long, well-muscled prime lambs desired by the domestic and export market. The main driver at Chrome is breeding sheep that will maximise the dollar per hectare return for our clients.

 

To do this, we keep our studs commercially orientated, selecting sheep on recorded breeding values, raw measured data and visual assessment. Major embryo transfer programs across all breeds, ensured production and genetic improvements in the quality of the sheep.  All sheep at Chrome are bred for their ease of care and management, hardiness and doing ability.  All maternal ewes, once over 2 years of age, are predominately run as a ‘no drench’ flock and in large contemporary groups to ensure they can perform in typical commercial farming situations.

 

We continue to strive to be industry-leading. Our development of the ICON Southie breed is testament of this. The Southie sheep has a mix of the best traits of the Poll Dorset and Southdown breeds in the one animal. High muscling, early maturity, exceptional growth, and the added bonus of hard black feet are key features of the breed.

 

With this new breed now in commercial production, we are proud to offer commercial lamb producers a range of options when selecting a ram for their own operations from Chrome Sheep studs.

 

Chrome MaternalsChromedale, Perendale and Coopworth – offer producers the ability to introduce a range of desirable maternal traits such as good mothering, and excellent fertility into flocks through proven breed sires tailored to individual requirements.

 

Chrome Terminals– ICON Southies® and ICON Poll Dorsets – bring together the superior prime lamb traits of long thick bodies, high muscle EBVs, structural soundness and rapid early growth with finishing ability in performance recorded sires.

 

 

We openly invite you to come and inspect our genetics by giving us a call to arrange a time.
