Upstanding and proud…Kane commands attention with his macho stance and outstanding fleece attributes

If you are serious about giving your herd a ‘quantum leap’, then Kane is for you. He has proven genetics on both sides of his lineage and whilst born in the UK, is packed full  of pure Australian and Peruvian genetics.

His sire supreme champion EP Cambridge Joshua was himself sired by the famous Accoyo Remarque, regarded by many as one of the most influential herdsires to date.

Kane’s Dam Popham Camay is a daughter of the famous EP Cambridge Navigator of ACC, a stand out, multi-award winning son of the infamous EP Cambridge Peruvian Spartacus.

Kane’s fleece characteristics are all that one could hope for from his famous ancestors. It displays his sire’s legendary brightness, has incredible density, is uniform in colour and is organised into individual staples that are highly alligned with a high amplitude crimp. What is even more exciting, is the fact that this young male is displaying the presence of micro-bundling within the staple, a trait that is only coming through in the most advanced of modern day fleeces.

Coupled with this, Kane has excellent substance of bone, fantastic conformation and is a lovely natured male.
