Avalon – Dag Score Trait Leader

Avalon has been selecting for low dag score along with worm resistance for over 33years. Their Ultimate ram 3049/15 is the trait leader for dag score in New Zealand (SIL June 2020) Three of the top 5 rams in New Zealand for dag score are Avalon rams. The top Perendale ram is also an Avalon ram (233/18 ranked 11th).


We don’t dock our Ultimate or Texel cross lambs and expect over 80% to remain dag free.

Rams not selected for dag score can be adding up to an extra $6,000 in crutching and dagging costs (based on contract pricing) over each rams 5-year breeding life.
