Easyrams Joins Forces with MSG

04 July 2014

UK - Maternal Sheep Group treasurer Ian Duncan Millar took the opportunity to welcome Robyn and Philippa Hulme to the group in front of their eyecatching stand at Scotsheep recently.

The Hulmes consider their New Zealand Texels to be primarily a maternal breed and their ethos of producing functional, recorded sheep echoes that of the existing membership.

Mr Millar said: "Easyrams are looking for the same mothering abilities and so are ready-made members of the Maternal Sheep Group and their rams are natural partners for efficient and proficient ewes."

Later that week, group member and Easycare breeder Barry Sangster gave a presentation to the Easycare Society AGM, just up the road at Abbey St Bathans, with the aim of encouraging the uptake of performance recording and use of recorded genetics within the breed.
