Growth Chart

We monitor and publish the growth rates of all of our young stock for two purposes. 

The first is to ensure that the weanlings and yearlings are developing at a consistent rate.  Any anomalies in weight gain can help identify an underling issue in terms of parasite burden, over/under-feeding, dental or other health problem. 

Secondly, we like potential purchasers of our stock to be confident that each yearling presented at the sales has been consistently developed over a period of time from birth to sale day.  We believe this demonstrates that no period of yearling development has been rushed or forced to meet a certain end.
