In 2022, as part of the CPT Natural Mating program, Sheep Ireland purchased 13 rams to be mated with the CPT Ewes.
ERRIGAL ABBEY is a Suffolk ram lamb bred by LambPlus breeder SEAMUS BROWNE who currently resides in CPT farmer ANDREW MOLONEY’s farm in County Offaly. This is an outstanding ram lamb who is a double 5-star and is in the top 2 and 3 % within his breed for both Replacement and Terminal Indexes.
ERRIGAL ABBEY has a Euro value of € 0.43 in his Replacement Index and € 1.37 in his Terminal Index, with very good accuracy of 77% and 78% respectively. This ram lamb is also 5-star for No of Lambs Born and Survivability, with accuracies above 73%. He is also 5-star and in the 1% top Suffolk rams for his Days to Slaughter Index, at -10.9 days with an excellent 82% accuracy.
ERRIGAL ABBEY is taking part in the CPT natural mating this year and will be joining a team of other ram lambs who will be put into a group of 100 ewes. The progeny produced by him will be DNA parentage verified to him and to their respective dams. All performance data of his lambs will be captured throughout the year in the CPT program in 2023.
