John and Carol Wingate, along with their daughter Stephanie, farm 537ha (460 effective) sheep and beef property on Castlehill Road at Alfredton, east of Eketahuna. It is rolling to steep hill country running 2400 ewes, 900 of which are SIL recorded.
Meldrum Romneys started recording in 1970 with the aim to produce good commercial Romney sheep that shift well and give a good balance of production in growth rate, fertility, wool quality and wool weight. The breeding programme places a big emphasis on mothering ability and weight of lambs weaned. Lambing begins 10th September.
