Lleyn sheep may not be the biggest or the showiest of breeds, but, these increasingly popular sheep, which in the 1970’s were classified a rare breed, are now common place on upland and lowground units alike, as flockmasters are forced to continually cut costs to make ends meet.

Lleyn Rams are an ideal way to inject maternal traits, fertility and hybrid vigour back into breeding ewes.

The Lleyn ram has also become popular for crossing onto hill and lowland ewes to produce a quality prime lamb or to produce a Lleyn cross female replacement that carries the qualities of the Lleyn ewe.
