Sheep Ireland are still in the process of selecting rams for use in the CPT program for the 2021/2022 breeding season. Many breeders have already been in contact wishing to submit their ram in the running. Breeders who have entered rams to the CPT in past years have reaped huge benefits as the accuracies of their rams and his progeny increase significantly, making their genetic evaluations more accurate. They also have genetic linkage to the CPT, meaning their flock will be genetically linked for up to 3 years.
If you are interested in putting your ram forward for the CPT, or if you want to know more about what’s involved, please call the Sheep Ireland office on 023 882 0451, or send an email to [email protected].
