Webinar: Buying a Signet-recorded ram for terminal sire traits

July 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join AHDB Beef & Lamb and Samuel Boon, Senior Manager with Signet Breeding Services, for a webinar on buying a recorded ram for terminal sire traits. The webinar will start at 7pm and be approximately 35 minutes in length with time for questions at the end.

A flock’s physical performance directly affects its profitability. The only way to lift flock productivity permanently and with some certainty is through selective breeding. Commercial farmers are seeking terminal sires to suit their particular farms, reducing days to slaughter and increasing the value of the lambs sold. This webinar on buying a recorded ram for terminal sire traits will cover a variety of topics including:

  • How to interpret Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs)
  • Where to find the EBVs for a ram
  • What has been learnt from RamCompare
