  • Outdoor rearing and easy lambing
  • Prolificacy – can rear an extra 0.19 lambs compared to standard UK crossbreds
  • Vigour
  • Production costs reduced by up to 55p/kg

  • Reduced cost of production
  • To improve kgs lamb produced per acre
  • To improve efficiency while maintaining the biosecurity benefits of a closed flock
  • A hill cross to make the most of marginal land
