ABERTEX MEAT RAM – ABERTEX DUAL PURPOSE RAM
Sheep breeders who are looking for a combination of maternal and carcase 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 will suit your system if you:
- Want a combination of the best UK and New Zealand genetics to produce a ‘Texel type’ crossbred ewe
- Want the ability to lamb outdoors with selection for lambing ease and vigour
- Want to keep a hardy crossbred ewe that can be kept to perform at altitude
- Want a Texel equivalent for lowland farms to breed improved replacement ewe lambs, whilst maintaining the growth rate and carcase quality of the male lambs
Our Abertex rams stem from our Nucleus Flock in the Scottish Borders...
Our nucleus flock in the Scottish Borders operates one of the largest performance recorded flocks in the UK with more than 40 traits recorded in the 1000 elite nucleus ewes. The breeding programme is growing rapidly with multiplier units recording a further 10,000 breeding ewes. The elite nucleus flock is farmed under commercial conditions, lambing outdoors so the ewes have to earn their place to stay within the flock at this level. We accelerate the very best genetics using large scale multiple ovulation embryo transfer (MOET) programs.
We breed and record rams to perform in the environment where our customers need them to succeed.
