Abstract: Optimum flock structure and selection practices can improve the profitability of commercial Merino flocks. This report describes several programs that have been developed by the Sheep CRC to facilitate prediction of the potential effects of alternative flock structures and selection practices. These programs include programs that predict the effects of on-farm fibre measurement, terminal sire mating, proportion of wethers in a flock, simultaneous assortment and lamb growth rate.
