News from the farm August 2018

We’ve been busy these last few weeks selecting our Exlana rams ahead of the 5th annual Exlana Rams Sale on 8th August.  Lists of rams for sale just published are available below:

In addition performance figures for our  Texel Rams 2018 and Suffolk Shearling Rams 2018 have now been published. We have now supplied AHDB with four rams for the  RamCompare Project and had a tremendous success last November when the first set of results were announced at the Sheep Breeders Roundtable. Indeed, the top ram in the project so far, is the first ram we supplied to Ram Compare. He was used in our flock as a ram lamb and we hope to use some of his semen again this year. We were also pleased to hear that the 2nd highest rated ram in the project is one of the rams we have used in both the last two years through AI. Such a result is enormously satisfying and gives us the confidence that we are making the ‘right decisions’ for ourselves as breeders and within the wider industry.

Open Evening – AHDB Ram Selection & Breeding – 14th August.  6.30pm start at Ayshford Barns, Junction 27 off M5. The focus of the evening will be how to get Better Returns from using Estimated Breeding Values ( EBV’s).  Please Contact Us or register with AHDB if you would like to come.
