We use the Sheep Genetics Dual Purpose Plus Index to select our sheep. This index is aimed at
those producers whose majority sheep income comes from sheep sales. It is for self-replacing
merino flocks that do not keep their wethers and also join a portion of  their ewes to  terminal
sires for lamb production. The following table shows the likely genetic response to 10 years of
selection !
