Alpha Sheep Genetics ~ Focus on the Future

Stacks Image 1

DNA = $$$

The rams you buy are a capital investment.
Dual purpose rams used for 4 years will have daughters lambing in your flock 9 years later.
Remember that 80% of genetic gain comes from rams used and that genetic gain, like interest in the bank, is cumulative. Each new generation builds on the previous one and the benefits can amount to thousands of dollars in your bank.

As a group we work together to provide linkages so that our sires can be compared in
Across Flocks & Breed Sil-ace Reports.
We invite farmers to view the Alpha Sheep Genetics Sire Summary & Ram Selection List
