MV ACCREDITED 100% ARR/ARR LLEYN GOLD RECORDED
The market requires carcases of 18-22 kg, ie lamb live weights of 40-48 kg.
Production economics, on the other hand, require the maximum yield of lamb per acre.
For many years, the Lleyn Sheep Society's message has been that the way to achieve the best commercial results is to use the medium sized, very milky Lleyn ewe lambing at 170-200% and stocked at a rate of 3 (instead of 2 Mules) per acre. Whether bred pure or put to a terminal sire, the Lleyn ewe gives maximum output with minimal input.
Since we established the Roseland Flock in 1995, our aim has been to breed productive, medium-sized ewes (70-75 kg as shearlings) with good length and conformation, and with a high health status.
Focusing on Maternal Performance
We select year-after-year for maternal performance - ease of lambing, mothering ability and milkiness / lamb growth while maintaining a flock lambing % reasonably close to 200%.
Focusing on Breed Type
Our ewes are stylish, and are good examples of the Society’s ‘Ideal Lleyn’, with high quality, dense wool, enabling the flock to be outwintered in all weathers.
Focusing on Health
We run a closed flock which is MV accredited. In addition, every flock member is Scrapie genotype ARR/ARR, the highest band of resistance to scrapie (eligible for export).
