I have been following the Springhill Flock in NI for some time, and have been nothing but impressed by the consistent quality of their stock. This ram is the full package, having all the traits we breed for, and we are very excited to add him to our flock genetics.
Unfortunately the semen arrived too late for us to use this breeding season, however, we look forward to using it next year on some of our UK sired females.
GREENVALE UPTOWN BOY
We had the opportunity to purchase semen from this outstanding Irish yearling ram, who is a son of Ballynoe House Playboy. He has tremendous muscling and carcass and will definitely be an asset to our breeding program.

Our plan is to use this ram over Oakchurch Ruben's daughters, but we will breed some of our ewes to him this year. He has tremendous flesh and muscling and a nice tight skin. We are excited to add him to our genetics.
Terminal Sire Index 93%
KNOCKIN UNDERCOVER BROTHER
This ram lamb caught my eye last year (photo below). He is a son of the record breaking Knockin Shockin out of an Arbryn Olazabal & Edstaston Madison daughter. He is in the top 5% for the breed in the UK (Signet recorded).

We are very excited to import his genetics and cannot wait for the arrival of his progeny.
EDSTASTON UMPIRE DICKIE BIRD
When we were offered the chance to import some of this outstanding ram's semen, we did not think twice. Ruben has sired many top progeny in the UK over the years, and has all the traits we are looking for in a ram. He is definitely going to be a great asset to our breeding program.

Top 2% for terminal sire index
Top 3% for maternal index
That says it all!
Son of the record breaking ram, Knockin Shockin, sold for £26,250 as a ram lamb. Like his sire, Turnberry has outstanding qualities of length, width with some serious back-end and in the top 5% for performance. He is definitely passing this on to his offspring, as you can see.
Son of Edstaston Turnberry
A son of Wedderburn Peleus. This ram is the full package. Santana has tremendous length and loin, and is a great solid ram, and we are excited to add him to our breeding program.
Son of Rainbow Santana
His terminal sire index is a whopping 451 putting him in the top 1% for index and muscle, and top 5% for growth.
