Going back to where it all began for B+LNZ Omega Lamb field day
Simon and Annabel Saunders’ Stag Valley farm was where ‘it all began’, so it was an appropriate and very popular venue for the first beef + Lamb New Zealand Omega Lamb Project field day in March.
The 1,384Ha farm at Castlerock, near Lumsden, saw the genesis of the Headwaters breed when the very best genetic lines, bred for the Omega Lamb project and screened for taste and fat, were brought into the Omega flock at Stag Valley. Simon and Annabel now farm a complete Headwaters ewe flock.
The very well-attended event was run as part of the Beef+Lamb New Zealand Farming 4 Profit programme.
