The Society has launched the above scheme with full details available on pages 95 - 100 in the 2015 Society handbook.

The Breed Development Committee has put together the scheme with the objective for breeders to identify their most productive ewes hence giving you more information to help you decide which ewes to keep for replacements and which to consider for culling. The long term goal is for the breeder to increase the productivity of their flock. With increased numbers of breeders undertaking the scheme the effects should be felt further with an increased productivity across the breed. By increasing productivity and better still backed up by figures, we could have a strong marketing tool for the future.

The scheme is very much voluntary but the Society encourages breeders to take part.
