Farming at Pingelly where they run 5500 Merino breeding ewes, the Pages are doing their bit to optimise sheep production.

The family recently became one of the first members of the WA sheep industry's 100%+ Club.

Kane and Rebecca Page, pictured with their children Brock and Kara, have consistently marked 100 per cent weaned lambs in the past five years - and the goal is to push this even higher.

The 100%+ Club is part of the Department of Agriculture and Food WA and Sheep Industry Leadership Council's More Sheep partnership, which was designed to ensure a sustainable future for the industry.

The focus is to boost lamb marking rates through producer awareness and adoption of the latest technologies, at a time when the State's sheep flock is at a critically low level.

The theme of this year's Merino liftout - Making it count - reflects the gains that stud and commercial producers have been achieving and aims to provide information for producers striving to make the most of their sheep.
