Richard Roderick, Newton Farm, Brecon

Find out how Aberfield genetics can help towards improving lamb performance and reducing input costs at an open evening on Tuesday 13 June hosted by Richard Roderick at Newton Farm, Brecon where finishing more lambs from grass is one of the unit’s priorities.

Richard will be explaining why he invested in Aberfield rams to breed replacements for his 1,000 ewe flock towards achieving that goal. He’ll discuss the results of that breeding programme to date. This season 600 Abermax cross Aberfield cross lambs reached an average 19kg target finishing weight within 12 weeks with the majority reared off milk and grass.

Innovis’ Ben Anthony will go on to explain the benefits of introducing the Abermax, a robust meat sire bred off grass under commercial conditions and selected for easy lambing and fast lamb growth rates together with improved meat yield and meat eating quality.

Event organisers are Hay and Brecon Farmers in partnership with Agrimin Ltd who will be staging a lamb bolusing demonstration. Richie will be demonstrating its Combiclamp and EID Reader systems and Farming Connect will be available to discuss Farm Business Grant opportunities.

The event commences 7.00pm for 7.30pm. Refreshments will be available throughout the evening.
