Performance Recording

The Derrynock Poll Dorset stud has been performance recording since its inception in the early 1980’s, while our Meat Maternals have been recorded since we began breeding them.

 

Utilising the ASBV’s provided by Lambplan we provide our clients with good accurate information for several of the most economically important traits, such as:

•   Birth weight  
•   Gestation Length  
•   Growth rates  
•   Leanness/fat cover  

•   Eye muscle  
•   Worm resistance  
•   Market specific index’s  
•   And many more  

This has progressed in recent years, to include DNA testing (genomics), for Eating Quality and Meat traits such as:

•   Tenderness (shear force)  
•   Lean Meat Yield (LMY) 

•   Marbling (Intra Muscular Fat) 
•   Dressing percentage
