Testimonials

""We have used performance recorded rams for the last 10 years over all of our ewes and are seeing significant improvements in all aspects of the flock. There is definitely a merit to using performance recorded breeding stock. 250 of our ewes are tupped annually by the performance recorded Welsh rams and lamb outside in April. The best ewe lambs are kept as replacements within the flock and they’re making top quality mothers, easy lambing with strong maternal instincts. The remainder are bred to terminal sires.

As well as their maternal performance, we are also seeing the added benefits the rams are bringing to finished lamb production on the farm. Our lambs are now killing out at 16kgs and hitting the R3L spec where we were only achieving O grade in the past.""
