About Us

The site provides the Merino industry with an interactive web tool from which to access the data published in Merino Superior Sires (ISSN 1323-4609). Merino Superior Sires combines data from individual Central Test Sire Evaluation (CTSE) sites across Australia such that sires may be directly compared. The combined data is managed on behalf of breeders by the Australian Merino Sire Evaluation Association (AMSEA).
