November 2018

This month has been exciting, with an Embryo Transfer Program and a big step forward with wool quality on our paddock mating sires.
It is five years since our last ET Program and we enjoyed the expertise of Brecon Breeders for this and a modest AI event. This was our most prolific Embryo harvest to date, and we used 2 outside sires and one of our own proven young sires, Glen Holme 161908. His progeny born in April this year are exceptionally good types.
Our group of single mated sires includes a cohort of 2017-drop hoggets with significantly improved fleeces than had previously been available. This means we are excitedly awaiting our observation, measurement and tracking processes for the coming 2019 lamb drop; these will become available at our 2020 sale.
2020 a sight to see!
