Our Abermax 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 1,500 elite nucleus ewes. The breeding programme is growing rapidly with multiplier units recording a further 11,000 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.
