On Farm Sale of High Index Rams 2017

Our sale will be again on the last Friday in August which is the 25th.

Statistics for the rams offered for sale are on the ‘On Farm Sale’ page of this site.

Please come from 1pm to register for the sale on arrival. We hope this will make the administration easier and speed up the invoicing.

Varley’s Feed Company are kindly sponsoring the refreshment stand and will have hot and cold drinks and plenty to eat.

Many of the rams are in the top 1% of the breed and there will be plenty of choice.

We are changing the auction system and will pen the rams into groups according to their reserve price.

This system is becoming very common at an increasing number of high index ram on farm sales.

All our rams are MV accredited, in the HeptavacP system and have been given Dectomax. Please have a look on: www. basco.org.uk  for the full pedigrees.

Our stock ram Hans Fokker T79:13:095 has done well in the AHDB Ram compare trial. The muscle EBV’s are exceptional.

ABP are introducing their ABP Alpha Lamb bonus scheme ( launched at the Royal Welsh Show) for prime lambs sired by High Index rams;

The progeny of our rams will all qualify.

Hans Fokker95 going again for semen collection

We are so impressed with his progeny that Fokker is going to AB Europe again for semen collection as we have very little left in his can.

having had comments from breeders like

” His progeny has doubled my usual muscle EBVs” and

“the lambs are so clean with no wool on their head and below their knees and hocks”

“None of his lambs had twisted toes and their feet are such perfect shape”

” It’s the first time we have had an actual muscle depth back  scan over 46mm in depth and a muscle EBV over 8mm, but the best thing is that lambs looks the part.”

Fokker should have well over 400 progeny by next tupping season so keeploking at the Basco website.
