SHEEP CLASSING BETTER FLOCKS MEAN BIGGER RETURNS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 4 October 1928

SHEEP CLASSING BETTER FLOCKS MEAN BIGGER RETURNS (By E. A. Elliott, Sheep and Wool Expert). Sheep classing is the opex-ation of grading the breeding flock and sel ecting the sires for use in mating, the object being to gradually raise the standard of the whole flock. The px-actice is an annual one on all stud properties, or where lax-ge nuxxxbers of ewes ax-e bred from each year, and it is often done by x-ecognised sheep classers who do nothing else than class the sheep of different pxopex ties each year, and' perhaps select rams suitable for use in the flocks concerned. PAYS EVEN WITH SMALL FLOCKS. Sheep classing, howevex-, should not be confined to the larger flocks. In evex-y flock, no xxxatter how small, there is room for impx-ovement, and on account of the casual xxxethods by wmcn many nocKS are duiic up me need is usually very great. The lxxan who only requix-es a small bi-eeding flock is at a disadvantage because station ownex-s and mana gers do not like selling small lines o...
