We pride ourselves in excellent customer service skills and in being progressive within the Seedstock Industry. Subsequently, becoming a Sheep Improvement Limited (SIL) bureau during 2000 was an exciting new addition to the services we already offer to over 1000 beef breeders nationwide. SIL is New Zealand’s leading sheep recording system currently recording with approximately 740 flocks and receiving Breeding Values (BVs) and Indices on their reports.

As an SIL bureau, PBB are able to record approx 150 different traits from your preprinted record sheets or directly from your paddock book. For those breeders so inclined, we can accept records via disk or e-mail and discounted rates may apply. If you have a computer but are unfamiliar with using the SIL compatible applications, staff will be pleased to guide you through the steps.

Our friendly, competent staff are happy to discuss your breeding objectives and those of your clients. This will enable us to tailor reports to suit your individual requirements and ensure you get value for money using the SIL system.

We invite all SIL clients to utilise our tag ordering and graphic design services.
