Practising what we preach

From the home of our Nucleus flock in Aberystwyth, we operate the largest performance recorded flock in the UK, recording more than 40 traits in our 1,500 ewe flock. Our nucleus flock lamb outdoors at a 1000ft and farmed under commercial conditions, we accelerate the very best genetics using large scale multiple ovulation embryo transfer (MOET).  We have breeding partner flocks across the country also recording a further 2000 plus ewes.
