|The company, Premier Texels and Premier Sheep Genetics Limited (PG)
started operations in January 1992 with the objective of developing a
large purebred Texel Stud flock.
Being aware that the Texel is one of the world's most
productive meat breeds of sheep, PSG invested heavily in foundation
"seed stock" by purchasing 321 of the most genetically purebred
animals from those originally introduced into New Zealand.
From its modest beginning (with only 321 Texel ewes), PSG has
increased its stock tremendously and within a short period has grown into
one of the largest breeders of registered purebred Texels in the southern
hemisphere and is now running 600 purebred ewes.
Premier Sheep Genetics is based at Patangata, Central Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. Rob Forsyth is the owner/manager.
With the demand for the Texel composite rams PSG are producing
Texel/Finn/Romney, Poll Dorset, Perendale, Coopworth and Suffolk
