The Shropshire Sheep Breeders Association have been working closely with breeders from both sides of the border for a number of years to help promote the breed. We actively support events with our breed stand and visit many flocks.
Flock sizes vary as do the management systems in use. Shropshires are grazed in tree plantations and farmed to produce prime butcher lambs which finish early from grass, without the need for concentrate feed, and produce good meaty carcasses.
If you are interested in starting a flock or just need advice please contact:
