The Ivadene Stud was founded in 1966
on Kismet bloodlines.
Currently the stud has a breeding flock of 370— 400 ewes.
Careful selection of replacement sires from leading studs has helped maintain a high standard within the stud.
Some of the sires that have had a major impact include Ashbank 91/85, Gererdan 232/90, Allendale 150/96, Derrynock 201/99. We also run a commercial prime lamb enterprise, turning off 800—1500 export lambs per year, which helps us focus on what type of rams we need to be breeding for our prime lamb clients.
