We are pleased to announce the importation of
New Zealand Gotland semen in 2009 and Swedish semen in 2011. Previously, all Gotland semen was imported from one small UK flock. Tthe new semen will provide genetic diversity in the emerging pool of US Gotlands.
NZ Gotlands are considered by many as having the finest wool of all Gotland sheep world-wide. Gotlands are a Swedish breed so obtaining semen from some of the top rams in Sweden has always been our goal. Why else raise a Swedish breed?
We primarily use Shetlands & Finns for our Gotland project. Those approved breeds provide the size, fineness, head/tail structure and personality
we want in our Gotlands.
Limited New Zealand semen available at cost - $55 per straw.
Join the waiting list for Swedish semen. Final costs not yet calculated.
