2 Tooth Ile de France rams

THE EASY LAMBING EARLY MATURING PRIME LAMB SIRE

Easy Lambing - Great over merino ewe lambs.

Many clients have reported how easy lambing the Ile de France is.  Andrew and Shiree Mills, Louth Bay, SA, have used Ile de France rams over their merinos since 2010.  “We have had no lambing problems.  Our 50 kg merino ewe lambs have been joined to Ile de France and have tailed over 100% for the past 2 years.  I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t seen how easily these young ewes lambed with my own eyes”.


Fast Growing, Early Maturing

Matt Quinn, Hallet South Australia has joined his merinos to Ile de France, Poll Dorset and Suffolk rams for 2 years.  “The first draft of lambs is dominated by the Ile de France cross lambs and by the second draft pretty well all the Ile de France lambs are gone”, reports Matt.  "The most profitable lamb is the one I sell off mum and the Ile de France cross make an excellent trade lamb”. Matt plans to replace all his other rams with Ile de France.

 

Great Over Merinos and Dohnes

Mal Jarred, Nhill, has used Ile de France rams over his Dohnes for the past 2 years.  Mal finds the rams great workers – this year he had just 26 empty out of 850 ewes joined to 5  Ile de France rams.  The Ile de France x Dohne lamb has the length of the Dohne and the muscle of the Ile de France, “they weigh a lot heavier than they look,” says Mal.

Both Matt Quinn and Andrew Mills are joining Ile de France to merino where the Ile de France proves a winner as an easy lambing sire producing fast growing lambs that mature at 45-50 kgs live weight.   They weigh heavier than they look!
