The Bluefaced Leicester Influence
Conformation: The Blueface increases the length of body, which enables the mule ewe to carry multiple births, and wether lambs to be finished to a wide range of carcass weights.
Vigor: The crossbred mule lambs are vigorous at birth and well protected to withstand harsh conditions.
Lambing Percentage: It is not uncommon for Mule flocks to produce lamb crops exceeding 200%.
Easy care management: The Mule ewe’s mothering ability and milkiness from day one through finished stage ensures an efficient grass to meat conversion.
Wool: The fineness and quality traits of the Bluefaced Leicester’s wool are passed on to its progeny, increasing the value of the wool clip.
The prolificacy, milkiness, and conformation passed on to the Mule ewe
from the Bluefaced Leicester makes her the perfect prime lamb producer,
when put to any terminal sire.
