Shropshires Across the World

The dual-purpose nature of the Shropshire breed, with its high quality wool and excellent meat, led to a great many exports.  Between 1900 and 1920, nearly 7,000 Shropshire rams were exported to all continents of the world where they were used to improve the indigenous sheep populations.

Outside of the UK and Europe, Shropshire flocks are still to be found to this day in North America, Australia and New Zealand.
