Counting Costs - Not Just Sheep

Breeding Sheep

Innovis breeding sheep

Innovis is the leading supplier of sheep genetics. Our commitment to research and development has enabled us to build upon our highly successful and established sheep breeding programmes. The result is a selection of both maternal and meat sire lines suited to meet the individual needs and requirements of the modern commercial sheep farmer.

Our Innovis Aberdale® and Aberfield® maternal sires produce exceptional crossbred ewe lambs that offer commercial lamb breeders the ability to maintain or increase production outputs from prolific ewes that are capable of rearing twins off grass.

With the emphasis on quality from the farm gate to the consumer’s plate, our Innovis Abermax® meat sire rams are proving to be extremely popular with commercial sheep breeders who want to optimise their finished lamb production.

Whilst sheep breeders who are looking for a combination of maternal and carcass traits favour our Abertex® dual-purpose sire - a ram that is capable of producing high quality finished lambs on hill/upland terrain and of maximizing the benefits of easy lambing for prime lamb production in a lowland farm environment.

In addition to our own breeding excellence, Innovis has recently forged a partnership with Focus Genetics to become the sole UK distributor of their Highlander maternal and Primera meat sire breeds. This partnership allows Innovis to offer you a much wider choice of world class sheep genetics targeted to improve on-farm livestock production and efficiency.

Our pioneering genetics are available internationally to support the production of livestock worldwide.
