In addition to the Stud, Glen Park also runs a commercial operation on Glen Esk Station.
From a flock of 2,200 ewes 3000 to 3500 lambs are produced annually. 
These are sold over the hook or through Ouyen Livestock Exchange.

This flock enables us to see how our genetics perform in a pastoral environment.







Commercial

To fill a "From Nature Pastoral Company" lamb order, 80 Glen Park White Dorper commercial lambs were counted through the gate from a mob of 450.

41 were slaughtered on 6/07/16 for an average carcass weight of 22.66kg.

The remaining 39 were put into a native pasture paddock with 150 weaners.

These were mustered for slaughter on 26/7/16 for an average carcass weight of 27.07kg.

With no supplementary feeding the second group gained 4.41kg carcass weight or 220 gms per day weight gain.

In the butchers words 'there was no waste, and they cut out magnificently'.
Many thanks to Greg Carter, Quality Assurance Manager, 'From Nature Pastoral Company Pty Ltd', for the informative carcase yeild and costing spreadsheet of a 28kg
Glen Park lamb, and the photos of the finished product.
