Registered pedigree stock is usually available for sale, dependent on the season.

 

Sheep are flock animals with an important social hierarchy and suffer stress when separated so I prefer to sell small groups together, with the exception of breeding rams which might benefit from having a wether for a companion.

All breeding stock is fully registered with Grassroots in the RBST Combined Flock Book before sale. Please support the Rare Breeds Survival Trust in the conservation of Portland sheep by insisting on buying registered animals and by continuing to notify births and registrations in your own flock. 

All births in my Portland flock are notified to the RBST. Registrations are usually done when the animal is over a year old when its quality can be properly assessed for breeding purposes. This is particularly important in rams. I do not sell lambs for this reason, but wait until their second summer/autumn and so they become available as shearlings.

Starter flocks

I have already sold my shearling ewes this year but still have some older girls for sale once their lambs are weaned. Please email me your enquiry

Rams
Please think about your tupping season early and secure the ram that will complement your ewes as soon as you can.  Portland Sheep Breeders Group members can ask for kinship analysis to check the compatability of pedigrees with their ewes. Even more important is to find a ram that meets the breed description correctly.  Using ram lambs is a false economy as many key features develop at around 18 months old. In the absence of sales this year please give yourself time to find a quality ram before the Autumn.
 
I have two shearling rams for sale this year, and also some two year olds.
Please contact me if you are likely to be interested.
