North Wales and Cheshire Border Testimonial
“I’m focused on maximising output value from my 700 Welsh ewe flock by introducing the Aberfield.”
“Since introducing the Aberfield maternal sire, I’ve a ready market for the ewe lambs. The majority are weaned in mid-July at 12 weeks, an average 30kg, and they’re all sold within a month…the Aberfield cross tup lambs also contribute a significant amount to the business, these lambs are now finishing to target 18.5kg from 12 weeks, the majority are away off forage by November.”
