Gemini Prime Lamb Sires is a performance focused White Suffolk & Suffolk stud run by the Mitchell Family at Riverview, a 420-acre property located at Werneth, Victoria.
The long-established family stud is dedicated to the production of powerful flock sires backed by verifiable data who deliver long lasting genetic benefits & positive market returns for commercial prime lamb sheep producers.
Breeding structurally correct, functional, & highly productive sheep is the stud’s core focus & emphasis is placed on the top end of a range of performance traits.
DNA testing was introduced at Gemini around six years ago to further improve meat-eating traits whilst maintaining the stud’s performance benchmarks for all other traits, including lamb survival, lambing ease, lower birth weights along with early maturity, high growth, lean meat yield and positive intermuscular fats.
Renowned industry sires bred by Gemini include the impressive White Suffolk ram, GEMINI 170470, a proven sire whose progeny continue to deliver outstanding results.
Currently the stud breeds from approximately 800 ewes annually, turning off over 1200 lambs where the males are classed back to approximately 300 sale rams.
The very best of these rams are offered at Gemini’s two on-property auctions, held annually in early February and mid-October.
Sheep producers can purchase with confidence as all rams sold are fully brucellosis accredited, MN3 and vaccinated for Johne’s disease.
The Mitchell family welcome all enquiries.
