Since the inception of our breeding program we have used DNA parentage and electronic tags to ensure the data we are collecting and our pedigree records are accurate.

Since the inception of our breeding program we have used DNA parentage and electronic tags to ensure the data we are collecting and our pedigree records are accurate.  The most important feature of the use of DNA parentage is that allows us to lamb our ewes in commercial conditions on the hill with sire groups all mixed in with each other.  In this way we are not inadvertently favouring or disadvantaging any individual animals. They all have the opportunity to express their genetic potential under commercial conditions.
