Exotic sheep: will they benefit the New Zealand meat industry?
The purpose of this project is to evaluate exotic sheep that have been introduced into N.Z, and to see if they can benefit the Meat Industry by lifting the quality of our lamb carcasses. I will give background information on the development of the Sheep and the Meat Industry to date. I will also outline market requirements. I plan to give points of view, both for and against the importation of exotic sheep. Some trial work on breed comparison has been done in the U.K. and in N.Z, and I will interpret the results obtained, and with luck, reach an unbiased conclusion.
