Abstract: Performance measurements in commercial sheep flocks can improve production in the short-term, contribute to genetic gain and can be used to target specific markets and implement precision management. The benefits of performance measurement for enterprises that produce wool, prime lambs or both are discussed. Measurement of fibre diameter may increase income from wool, and measurement of liveweight may increase income from meat; additional benefits can be realised from other performance measurements.
