INTRODUCTION TO RECORDING

Members of HDSBA are able to make full use of the Signet Sheep breeder services, details of which can be viewed here 

Getting involved in recording at whichever level is practical and economic for you, offers the opportunity to make genetic progress within your pedigree flock and also the ability to match the needs of the commercial farmer and sell rams with good growth rates and carcase scores.  

Two Levels of Recording are available:


Basic

Birth Weights and Eight Week Weights £30

Full  

As above plus 16 – 20 Week Weights and Ultra Sound Scanning £95 (£190 N. Ireland) Smaller flocks may choose to scan on alternate years if they wish.

For full details of these various options can be found under the Recording Your Flock tab
