Turanganui Romneys

Turanganui Romneys

These Romneys have been bred from superior rams by the Wairarapa Romney Improvement Group, which strives to increase the productivity of their members’ sheep. The animals are long and broad-bodied. They have tremendous wool cover, yet their faces and legs are clean, so that they can move freely on hill country.
