Let's unlock the potential of your sheep production system

At The New Zealand Merino Company, we understand that every property is unique and that there is no 'one-size-fits-all' solution. We want to help you find the 'perfect sheep' and production system for your farming enterprise.

NZM's production science initiatives focus on four key principles:

  • Market-led production: Focusing on what your production system can produce best, and producing it to your target market's specifications.

  • Breed well: Selecting genetics that meet your breeding objective and suit your environment.

  • Feed well: Developing year-round forage and monitoring systems to unlock the genetic potential of your sheep.

  • Keep them well: Optimising animal health and welfare through best-practice management.

On this website, you will find tools and new developments to help you get the most out of your sheep production system.
