The breeding flock is wintered on the mountain, with ewes being brought down just
a few days before the first lambs are due. Most then return to the mountain when
their lambs are 6-8 weeks old.
Lambs are weaned in mid-July, with all the ewes then remaining on the mountain until
tupping. A mix of both recorded and unrecorded tups are used, with some being home
bred to stamp the type and consolidate the genetic improvements made.
We don’t have a strong affiliation with any particular regional variety of Welsh
Mountain sheep, choosing to source rams from different areas if we believe they have
the capability to take our flock forward.
