Armdale and Armdale Park have been producing Poll Dorsets now for over fifty years and are one of the country’s largest seedstock producers of Poll Dorset genetics marketing over 400 rams annually.

The stud’s ability to make rapid changes to market trends has seen it continue to be one of the preferred suppliers to all leading meat processors and lot feeders. A good example of this being the demand for lamb with more shape in the muscle, particularly through the rack, loin and hindquarter where the most profitable cuts are achieved. This is made possible by Stockscans accurate scanning process providing the only accurate assessment of eye muscle area available today. This is a real figure and not an EBV, thus allowing producers to target specific markets for optimum premiums.

Visual appraisal, combined with muscle scanning has seen the depth of quality further developed through the entire draft with this year’s sale rams the most even in recent years.

Armdale-Armdale Park rams are bred to produce lambs that will satisfy all market types and specifications. Strict emphasis is placed on mobility and correctness whilst maintaining functionality and fertility, ensuring the prime lamb producers of an animal that markets itself.

“We buy Armdale rams because they are structurally sound, with long well muscled bodies and good conformation. Due to the early maturing and fast weight gain of their progeny, we are selling our lambs two or three weeks earlier than we were a few years ago. We select rams on conformation, but we find the Stockscan figures provided by the stud are very helpful in making our final decision."
