2022 Genovis Award.jpg

After recording our flock on the Genovis programme for only two years, we were absolutely delighted to be awarded 3rd place for Terminal Sire Breed.  We have been continually striving to improve our Charollais flock's genetics by bringing in semen from top UK Signet recorded rams, and it is paying off as our ADG's have significantly increased while feeding minimal grain.  Buying top genetics definitely makes a difference to overall flock performance and IS 100% worth the investment.

We were delighted to be awarded the GenOvis Grand Champion Ram and Grand Champion Ewe for Terminal Breeds at the 2023 All Canada Sheep Classic in Barriere BC.  Having the GenOvis data makes it possible to effectively evaluate the genetic value of our Charollais based on important economic traits against other breeders.

#1  Sandy Hill Hotshot 9H (AI Ram) - Stock Ram

Jackpot is currently the #3 Charollais Top Ram in Proof on GenOvis for Gain

Jackpot's dam, Sandy Hill 166F is our top producing ewe in the flock.  With his impressive rate of gain, length and muscling, there was no question that he would become a flock sire.  We have some of his offspring available in 2024.

James Bond is currently the #4 Charollais Top Ram in Proof on GenOvis for Gain.  It is unfortunate we were not able to ultrasound him at 100 days for back fat and loin depth for CARC.  He is solid muscle, as you can see from the video below,

This ram lamb caught my eye very early on, with his outstanding rate of gain, length and muscling, we knew he would be a future flock sire.  We will have one of his daughters each at the Classic and Grasslands..
