Innovis Aberdale® 

High-end sustainability and efficiency


Innovis Aberdale rams are available for flocks who wish to breed their own Aberdale crossbred ewes as replacements.

Our Aberdale system offers:

  • Ram/wether lambs that are faster growing, easier finishing with better carcass specification than the purebred or longwool alternatives. Around 85% of lambs from Innovis contracted hill flocks hit UK retail specification
  • Guaranteed access to exceptional rams carrying the best genetic traits

Best suited to producers who have:

  • Closed flocks with known health status
  • A commitment to rear ewe lambs to a specified quality year on year
  • Ideally a minimum of 300 ewes available for mating

"The Aberdale tups are tremendous, they held condition extremely well throughout tupping and winter and the scanning results of this group was not affected by the high ewe to ram ratio. The crossbred lambs they have produced are excellent and we hope to make a premium from the wethers."

Jim Campbell, Bampton Cumbria

Aberdale rams are supplied on lease arrangement for self-replacing flocks. This means that we will replace any ram that dies or is unable to work during the breeding season. All Aberdale rams are, MOT’d, quarantine treated and supplied with full health treatment records.
