Shropshire sheep are a tri-purpose breed (meat, wool, and tree-friendly).
The breed combines fast growth with excellent carcass traits, and a well-proven ability to finish successfully from grass alone.
Ewes are easy-lambing, with long and prolific productive lives, achieving lambing percentages of 160% and above, as well as having the ability to lamb before Christmas.
The rams are robust and make good crossing sires for commercial sheep keepers.
Shropshires have a more complete covering of wool than any other downland breed and produce a dense high-quality fleece weighing 2-3kg.
Shropshire sheep are tree-friendly, and are used in many agroforestry settings around Europe to reap ‘two crops from one acre’, as well as reducing the need for pesticides, herbicides, and associated labour.
