A new round of nominations has opened – please see updated press release and guidance notes below
Press Release: AHDB Beef and Lamb Ram Linkage Programme
Guidelines: AHDB Beef and Lamb Ram Linkage Programme

Free Semen from High EBV Rams

AHDB Beef and Lamb are currently promoting the use of semen from recorded rams with high EBVs by enabling breeders to access semen free of charge.

The objective of this scheme are :-

  • To increase flock connectedness, strengthening the quality of Signet breeding evaluations.
  • To provide a short-term injection of elite genetics into a breed, with the additional benefits if these sires are widely used and their genes retained in the population.
  • To increase the profile of recording within Breeds and Societies

The project summary and guideline details can be found in the documents here – the AHDB Beef and Lamb Ram Linkage Programme – Guidelines and the AHDB Beef and Lamb Ram Linkage Programme – Project Summary
