Innovis Abertex®
A versatile and hardy sire

Sheep breeders who are looking for a combination of maternal and carcass traits favour our Abertex® sire. Derived from top performing UK and NZ stock and developed through our unique breeding programme, these hardy rams are 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.

Abertex rams offer hill farmers the ability to:

  • Breed hardy crossbred ewes that can be kept on the hill and lambing at 150%
  • Produce crossbred [finished] lambs on hill/upland terrain

Abertex rams are well suited lowland sheep farmers who want to:

  • Breed their own high quality replacements
  • Produce premium finished lambs from an easy lambing sire

The Innovis Guarantee

All our sheep are underpinned with the Innovis seal of quality. This means that our Abertex rams are guaranteed, MOT’d, quarantine treated and supplied with full health treatment records.

Our commitment to you

We believe in our products and will work with you to help you to maximise returns from our genetics.

Counting costs – not just sheep

If you have any of the above requirements, one of our consultants can advise you on which of our rams would best suit your needs.
