Sheep Ireland has launched a new ram and breeder search facility ahead of the busy autumn sales period. The timing of its release is particularly helpful for farmers who are apprehensive about attending sales in the current environment or those looking to purchase direct from the farm. It offers an opportunity to check the genetic credentials of rams currently available in the market online. At present, there are in excess of 10,000 rams listed as available for purchase.

The service can be accessed at https://appsh.sheep.ie/ram-search. The platform is desktop-based but Eamon Wall explains it is also optimised for viewing on mobile phones and a link can be easily pinned to your home screen to facilitate quick access.
