We aim to breed functional, structurally correct, well muscled rams, that can provide our clients with fast maturing lambs to suit any market requirement.
Our flock rams are bred using the same method as all our other stud stock including our breeding ewes, show ewes and stud rams. We dont have a commercial enterprise and our clients get the top and the pick of all our flock rams as we dont need to retain any for our own use. We do however follow the prime market trends closely and monitor our own client feedback with enthusiasm to maintain a high standard of ram we are producing here at Shellal. This has proved fruitful to connect with new clients who were not happy elsewhere.

The stud is virtually a closed flock, with only new genetics being introduced occasionally. This enables us to breed a stong line of genetics in our stud ewe breeding flock to produce top quality flock rams. Our rams have the ability to produce quick growing lambs! We know after 50 years of breeding that one thing remains the same and that is everyone wants fast growing lambs as soon as they hit the ground they need to be strong and have the genetics for growth (and meat yield) and this comes with well bred rams that have strong bloodlines. By using line breeding techniques the rams have greater potential to produce this type of lamb - strong, true and reliable.
