Innovis Abertex®

A versatile and hardy sire


Sheep breeders who are looking for a combination of maternal and carcass traits favour our Abertex® sire, 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


"These rams produce cracking lambs that are miles ahead of the traditional Texel"

Ron Breese, Gogarth, Machylleth 

All our rams are, MOT’d, quarantine treated and supplied with full health treatment records.
