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. It’s never the one or the other but always BOTH! At LANDRANI® we endeavour to breed top genetics by embryo flushing our top genetic material and transferring those embryos to lesser quality ewes.
LANDRANI® Meatmasters were the 1st commercial Meatmaster breeders to use sexed semen to inseminate our embryo donor ewes. This resulted in 99% of ewe lambs being born from embryos. We are currently also using Laparoscopic Artificial Insemination techniques with female sexed semen to impregnate all our ewes at LANDRANI®.
We enable the sheep farmer to take his production and financial management to new heights through technological tools, processes and systems.
