Motu-nui Crossbreds – Hybrid vigour with Romney reliability
Motu-nui Crossbreds offers high performing crossbred rams bringing hybrid vigour to your flock without compromising the Romney backbone.
Michael and Kate Tosswill, together with David and Valmai Holmes, have been operating in partnership with Motu-nui Rams since July 2012 when they took over the crossbred flock.
Michael had 5 years’ experience working alongside Jason in the stud business first at their Kaituna block and later at ICA Station itself. Michael takes an innovative approach to his flock, having made a few tweaks to the individuals crosses Motu-nui breeds since taking over the reins in a effort to find the perfect cross for his clients. We would love to hear your thoughts on what that cross looks like for you…
