New Headwaters Guide released

November 15, 2016

Headwaters has released a guide covering the breed’s background, goals and direction.

Coinciding with the completion of our first decade, the guide reflects the growing interest in the Headwaters’ approach from a genetic, management, processing and consumer marketing perspective.

General Manager Ian Hercus said the guide should help farmers consider the benefits of sheep bred for a premium eating experience and health benefits for both humans and ewes.

He says the essence of the guide’s message lies in this passage:

We believe producing animals that reflect market demand for increased animal wellbeing, health giving qualities, presentability (reduced pH) and greater taste is critical to the future of sheep farming in New Zealand. This is why Headwaters is integrated with the Alliance Group, linking breeding developments with market developments to allow famers to act on and benefit from these

The guide also covers the unique features of the Headwaters philosophy and offering as per the below.
