Last Wednesday marked the final day of AI for our 2018 CPT program on Brian Nicholson’s farm in
Johnstown Co. Kilkenny. During the course of the program 32 rams were used from 6 different breeds, a
list of the rams and their owners can be found here. Overall just over 2,100 ewes have been AI’d within a
13 day period, for now we look forward to the busy lambing period next March. This year all the mating data was uploaded directly to the database via the new LambPlus App. We are extremely happy
with how our program has gone this year which is in no doubt down to the hard work and dedication of the Sheep Ireland technicians, AI technicians from ProStar Genetics and AB Europe, and the CPT farmers and of course to the breeders who applied to have their rams be part of such a program. A sincere thank you to all involved.
