Optimising performance of the sheep has always been a priority on the farm. We are always looking for ways to improve our system and to make life easier.

This year we refocused our efforts in performance-recording. We recorded sheep for several years with Sheep Ireland but many other breeders were not recording, which made it difficult for us to make significant improvements in terms of accuracy.

More breeders are recording now, so it is easier to create links between farms.
