Meatmaster Breeders pride themselves with the fact that they
stick to the breeding norms layed down before them with the
main one being leave the animal out in nature, to perform
in nature because only then we will find the cream
rising to the top. The Meatmaster is a composite sheep
breed in South Africa. It is bred as a non-fat tailed
hair-type sheep for meat production. It offers farmers an
alternative with unique characteristics to meet the needs of
a huge market in South Africa and around the world.
The one aspect that makes the Meatmaster totally unique in
its development is the fact that the breeders first
established whether there is a commercial demand and tested
to see how the sheep performs and only after that success, a
stud industry was formed in the early turn of the century.
The stud industry was formed and based on the combination of
Performance Testing and the Hand and Eye method. Itís never
the one or the other but always BOTH!
