OUR MISSION

Better Returns In Your Flock

We believe every flock has the potential to create better returns on the farm level. Using the influence of top genetics to improve factors such as lamb survival, growth gain, meat yield and ewes mother ability can be one of the best investments for you as a farmer, sheep breeder and flock owner.
Many times we underestimate the need and/or possibilties for better performance in our sheep flocks. Comparing flocks using key performance indicators and sheep using estimated breeding values can help showing hidden opportunities to improve for both small and large sheep flocks.
We believe objective facts such as EBV's, performance recording, and a consistent evaluation of exterior should be a baseline for selection of the best rams and ewes for breeding. The more we know about the parents, the better we can predict the results we see in coming generations of lambs.
