Hill flocks in the UK have been involved in weight recording programmes for over 50 years. The reason for flock recording is to provide breeders with an unbiased way to find those rams and ewes in the flock with the best genetic potential. This booklet explains how hill sheep producers can get involved with performance recording services and take their flock forward.
RamCompare is the UK’s commercial progeny test for terminal sire rams. Over five breeding seasons, we have recorded the performance of 26,000 lambs sired by 280 rams through artificial insemination (AI) and natural mating.
