Pakaraka Crossbreds Wairarapa

Motu-nui Rams Crossbred’s waiting to be sorted in to breed-lines, 2013.

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…
