Our Results Do The Talking
In 2014, Oberon Stud began to show its stock with the pleasing result of a first place at our first show (Australian Sheep and Wool Show) for Oberon 3100 – ram under 1 ½ years born after the first of August.
Over the past few years, an emphasis has been to ensure excellent carcass sheep into the prime lamb market. Each year has seen lambs reach greater dressed weights and meat weights. In 2015/16, 5 month old lambs have dressed out at 26kg. 8 month old lambs have been able to reach 35.9kg dressed weight and produced 30.6kg of prime meat described by a renowned Central Highlands chef as "magnificent – vastly superior".
