Our breeding philosophies are the same as our commercial clients. We maintain an efficient, productive flock selected on the basis of science and practical assessment.

We strive to improve what we do at Hermes by employing technologies such as embryo transfer, artificial insemination, genomic analysis and objective measurements (EBVs) in an effort to achieve genetic gain in each generation, that’s the Hermes Advantage.

The Sire team exhibits a wide range of character traits to enable a responsive genetic breeding program to meet changing market demands. Additionally it allows targeted matings to progress structure.
