AFTER a tumultuous 2011 because of the devastating floods, the Merino breeders of Loddon Valley have recovered with a vengeance, not only in the clean-up on-farm but by being able to capitalise on the recent strong lamb, mutton and wool prices.

Last Friday, the Loddon Valley Merino Stud Merino Breeders Association held their annual field day, with 13 studs participating eight at the Serpentine Recreation Reserve, while the other five displayed their stud and sale rams on-property.

The winners of the best pen of three weaner rams was Panorama Poll Merinos, Borung.

Stock & Land's GARRY RODDA and STRUAN PEARCE were there.
