SIL is New Zealand sheep industry’s performance recording and genetic evaluation database. SIL’s genetic analyses provides ram breeders and their clients with indexes which can be used as a tool in selecting animals with the best genes for the traits most significant to your enterprise.  Allowing breeders to identify their genetically superior animals after all environmental influences on their production have been removed.

As a SIL Bureau we are able to record approx. 150 different traits and provide you with tailor made reports to suit your requirements.

Pair SIL with DNA technology for defining pedigree and gene tests of production i.e. our GGP Ovine 50k test, and you’re all sorted!
