The TRIGG sire reference progeny testing group was formed in 1998 by six of the North Islands leading Romney breeders in an innovative partnership to offer the best genetics from their performance recorded rams. The breeding values of all rams are recording on Sheep Improvement Limited indexes, enabling the group members to compare their rams against each other, and against other breeders.
