I farm: “130 pedigree and crossbred sheep and 15 bucket-reared calves on 50 acres with my wife Pauline. We started in 2015 with a small farm and thought it would be a niche business to get into the pedigrees.”

Pedigree: “We run 50 pedigree Charollais ewes, 20 Beltex and 50 crossbreds. We also keep some pedigree Suffolk and Bleu du Maine ewes to breed first-cross rams. Our aim is to breed long-lasting, hardy rams for commercial farmers that produce fast-growing lambs.”
