Emerge Podcast Episode 7: Don Pegler Is Not Your Average Sheep Farmer
This week’s guest on the Emerge Podcast by S&W Seed Company Australia is Don Pegler. Don has been farming on the Limestone Coast in South Australia for most of his life. He operates an extremely successful sheep stud operation with composite maternal ewes.
Don focuses heavily on the genetic improvement of his breeding stock and has been highly progressive with his approach to technology and screening. Getting the genetics right, and using data collection and statistical analysis to make decisions on his flock has been the greatest key to his success. On the podcast, we chat about the importance of early adoption of technology and investing in ongoing research, as well as how he manages to collect and analyse the data on his animals.
