The ICON prefix differentiates the terminal sires from the maternal sires within the Chrome studs, but also signifies the place which Chrome see the breeds – icons of the prime lamb industry. Both Icon Poll Dorset and Icon Southie breeds are the subject of stringent visual appraisal and selection, in conjunction with Lambplan performance recorded breeding figures to ensure a quality animal.


BREEDING OBJECTIVES:

  • Less “leg” than traditional terminal sires
  • Extra hindquarter and loin muscling
  • Rapid early growth
  • Easy finishing ability
  • Long thick bodies with clean faces
  • Easy lambing sires
  • More fat cover

 

As more producers build their maternal ewe numbers to somewhere near where they want them to be, demand for Chrome Sheep Studs terminal sire lines have been on the increase
