“For pedigree ram breeding, it’s crucial that as many pedigree ram breeders get involved in performance recording as possible”

This week, were going back to a discussion on had on Tuesday 22nd Sept, during Teagasc Virtual Sheep Week. The Irish Farmers Journal has an excellently written piece  about the “massive gains” that can be made by breeders who performance record! The article reflects on the discussion between Eamon Wall, Sheep Ireland, Michael Gottstein, Fiona Mc Govern, Áine O’Brien, Teagasc and of course the listeners who sent in their questions live on the Live Webinar that was held.

There is evidently merit in all forms of performance recording, so whether it be a lambing notebook filled with data from previous years or some weights recorded on sheets lying in the cupboard, it is never too late to begin electronically performance recording with Sheep Ireland in the LambPlus programme.  All this data can be entered from previous years as you begin and you can continue recording very easily with Sheep Ireland App!

Take a read of this article and find out how to can reap these ‘massive gains’ on your farm.
