Stud Principals

While recent classing our young rams we made the observation that between Trigger Vale  Stud Principals Jim and Andrew along with sheep classer Michael Elmes we had over 75  years sheep breeding and classing experience to draw upon. Being one of Australia’s most progressive and innovative sheep studs it’s fantastic that we have of this level of practical experience to draw upon to ensure we get both the genotype and phenotype right.
