Belclare Sheep AI

Last Saturday 19th August a number of Belclare breeders came together on the farm of John Renehan to
carry out some AI on their ewes. High Index rams were the order of the day and despite some issues
collecting adequate quality semen from some rams, all ewes were AI’d successfully. Hopefully the effort
that breeders have gone to will be rewarded with high index ram lambs for sale in 2018.
