OUR HERDS & FLOCKS
Rotmell Farming Genetics
For over 20 years Rotmell Farm has invested time into their livestock genetics. Following his Nuffield Scholarship Alex saw a need for producing an elite breeding herd and flock on his farm, with an aim to create a composite breed ideal for hill country. Since then producing genetic diversity and a flock/herd highly suited for upland conditions.
Fecundity, fertility, good milk with high solids are all traits found within our genetics. Bred to maintain a better performance in a colder climate and harder years, they will carry more young with more resilience. By selecting his livestock, ensuring that only suitable replacements where kept. Therefore naturally developing an optimum and healthy herd/flock, reducing animals prone to lameness or disease.
