SIRES

We have been inseminating our Texel flock with imported semen for several years, using both Dutch and UK genetics. As of December 2007, USDA rules allow the offspring of imported European semen to reside in any flock. The flock does not have to be enrolled in the Voluntary Scrapie Flock Certification Program.

Currently, we are using the following rams:
