About UsRomney New Zealand is an incorporated society representing approximately 130 Romney ram breeders. The society was formed in 1904 and today not only manages the day to day management of the breed society but is also very active in research, market promotion and promoting the breed where ever possible.
There are presently seven board members who represent the principal Romney producing areas of New Zealand. These board members are supported by a strong regional club structure that feeds into the national body.
Romney New Zealand is now strongly focused on improving the financial returns that commercial farmers achieve from using their Romney genetics. To this end they are now very active in developing wool and meat contracts for their clients. While in the early stages there are already some very promising opportunities developing?
