Some may call us lowland but I wouldn’t, I’d call us upland and on old permanent pasture. Gimmers bought from @scrubbuster did a smidge over 200%.to a hill cheviot tup. They were run in the same group as our other cheviot gimmers who averaged 145%. They’re big sheep and look a bit silly in the field next to our cheviot gimmers. Somewhere in the middle would suit us.Has anyone had any experience with aberfield x Cheviot ewes? Just wondering how folk found the aberfield x and what the scanning % of the above cross would be like on a lowland farm?
We’ll be putting more aberfields out for next year, this years crop of ewe lambs are looking decent at the minute having just weaned them.
