Farming background and objectives
There are a total of 1200 ewes of Poll Dorset, Aberblack and Exlana breeds on the farm lambing at the appropriate times. All 3 breeds are performance recorded to enhance their performance and development here at Burton.
Integrating the sheep and arable has enabled us to take 3 crops in 2 years where applicable on certain areas of the farm.
Our objectives are to produce breeding stock that not only makes our customers more profitable but also sustainable
