“Pure Perendale Performance – Victoria, Australia”
‘Mount Monmot Perendales’ is a new and exciting Australian genetic concept that has been launched in Victoria in 2011 – boasting a combination of over 40 years of premier New Zealand Perendale genetics from one of New Zealand’s well established and successful sheep stud operations – ‘Newhaven Perendales‘, with a passion and commitment to Perendales from Malcolm Fletcher of Skipton – alongside his daughter and son in law, Trudy and Tony Boyer.

It is this belief in the important role that today’s leading Perendales will play in the future of prime lamb and wool production in the Australian livestock industry that led Malcolm to search New Zealand for genetic assistance in this movement. “With a strong Perendale base of over 28,000 scrutinised, registered and performance recorded stud ewes in New Zealand it was an obvious place to start. It was important that we aligned ourselves with a progressive family – run stud operation that had scale and knowledge and were committed to long term genetic gains for the benefit of their industry, and ours” states Malcolm.
“As a team, we are focused on overall structural soundness, superior meat yield, efficient fecundity, parasitical tolerance and well-rounded performance coupled with longevity” says Smith, and this is why the new ‘Mount Monmot Perendales’ venture is such an exciting concept. These Newhaven derived genetics are well known in New Zealand for not only delivering a market focused animal, but the technology and genetic analysis that has been invested over four decades is phenomenal.
Malcolm Fletcher of ‘Mount Monmot Perendales’ believes that this team combines well to provide Australian sheep farmers with an unique opportunity to utilise this genetic progress in their own sheep flocks. “It is essential that we produce an animal that meets consumer driven demand for quality prime lamb and wool products into the future, which is indeed an exciting concept”.
