FAMILY BREEDING STRUCTURE
The current 2021 break-up of the Glanna Ewe base is listed to the left. The Poll Stud is run as a seperate flock. At Glanna we put a huge emphasis on the genetic background of each individual sheep, both on the fathers and mothers side. Often the Sire's mother has a big influence on the genetic outcome of his progeny. All sheep on Glanna are computer recorded to track both their own production but that also of the Sires and their Mothers family lines.
BREEDING FOR LONGEVITY
In the Glanna Stud, no ewe is automatically culled because of age. If she is sound of mouth and structurally sound then she is kept to continue breeding from. We have plenty of 8 year old ewes, and older, still in the stud and still producing and rearing lambs. Alot of talk in the industry of late has been about increasing numbers in the Australian flock, well holding onto the top older ewes is certainly a great way to go about it.

NO SELF FEEDERS USED AT GLANNA
Glanna does not use self feeders for any of our sheep. Some sheep have shown that they will do very well standing at a feeder all day but when a client buys that ewe or ram and takes them home to REAL WORLD conditions often some cant handle it. To breed genuine DOING ABILITY a stud must raise their sheep as their clients would run them. If a commercial producer wishes to push the feed into their younger sheep to obtain the best results possible regarding early growth and production then thats fine and their choice. But we are aiming at producing a LOW INPUT HIGH PERFORMANCE animal. Rarely are the costs of inputs stated when people boast about production results of their young sheep.
