Mel Stirling along with his nephew Rory run 1100 Romney Ewes & 200 suckler cows just north of Galashiels. The farm ranges from steep hill to rolling downs up on the tops.
The flock consistently weans over 150% of lambs to ewes mated. All ewes are lambed outside & male & cull ewe lambs finished & sold over the hooks at an average weight of 19.5 kgs.
Mel & Rory enjoy the Romney’s for the easy fleshing post weaning setting them up for consistently high scans.
Mel & Rory annually sell surplus Shearlings (350 available in July 2023), these shearlings have an extremely good reputation for shifting on & have helped transition a number of our clients into Romney’s within Scotland.
