why your next ram should be from us.

Our sheep genetics business arose from a desire to challenge traditional farming beliefs by bringing the technology, our successes and know-how from the pig industry into the sheep industry. Our process incorporates the whole farm; where we optimise and adjust every element of our program to maximise performance in relation to your unique requirements and farming environment. Simply put, we don't rear our sheep, we rear your sheep, and we are so confident in our process that we guarantee you will achieve genetic gain.

collaborative

We love sharing what we do with our clients, relish their feedback and adjust our breeding programme accordingly. Because together we are better.

DEDICATED TO DATA

Genetic gain comes from accurate data. That’s why every lamb has a full pedigree and is measured and assessed for all of the important traits.

INNOVATIVE

We are always looking for ways to improve how we do things, whether it is in our breeding programs or our farming operation.

a few words from one of our clients.

“I’ve worked with the team behind ProBreed for the last 7 years and have seen improvements in flock fertility, scanning & weaning percentages as well as improved ewe maternal traits, milk availability, growth rates and controlled lamb birth weight. Our future direction will include their rams.”

Gordon Brown
Shelburn

guaranteed

genetic gain.

We’ve seen first-hand how genetics can transform the productivity and labour efficiency of a flock.

And we are dedicated to bringing this genetic gain to our clients by supplying rams that get better every year. In fact, we are so confident in the performance of our sheep that we guarantee you will achieve genetic gain when working with us.
