We use 100% A.I. which allows us to maximise the use of the top genetics available, in the form of Sires both new and old.
We select our best breeding Females for flushing as often as possible
to maximise the best genetics available.
Avon has been flushed numerous times resulting in several pregnancies with many more eggs frozen. At present we have some embryo calves on the ground from her by Lord and Gigolo.
She has been flushed to Cloughhead Lord, Wilodge Vantastic, Ampertaine Gigolo, Ampertaine Jamboree, Truman Jagger and Broadmeadows Cannon, with a large bank of embryos froze away.

Our show heifer Heidi was successfully flushed in December'13 to Goldies Comet. Heidi was crowned NI Junior Heifer Champion in August'13 and we decided to flush her before settling her in calf. We have two promising embryo heifers on the ground from Heidi. Unfortunately she recently lost her first calf so was flushed twice to Ampertaine Gigolo resulting in 8 Grade A embryos, and to Gerrygullinane Glen resulting in another 8 Grade A embryos. We have a promising glen son on the ground at the moment and she has been recently flushed to Goldies Comet.
