My Sales Policy

Only the best lambs  are retained  and those I don't use as replacements for myself  are earmarked to be sold as shearlings.

The females are marketed either before tupping or in lamb to one of my rams.  The rams are  made available for sale either off farm or at pedigree auctions and Kelso Ram sales.

I aim to produce honest sheep that are of the best quality,  are hardy with a high health status and high EBV’s that grow really fast and will continue to thrive and do well for their new owners.

The flock is  Signet performance recorded, correct in the leg, have stretch with  natural conformation and good skins. I aspire to  produce lamb carcasses that grade U3L or better. 

The sheep are  fed on  a grass diet with  the ewes receiving very  limited  amounts of concentrate feed only during the last few weeks of gestation and first eight weeks of lactation depending on the weather and grass availability. Rumenco Ewe & lamb buckets are also made available at that time.

In winter I feed good quality haylage and Sugar Beet Pulp  style nuts if grass is in  short supply. I winter graze some  grassland  in HLS  and make molasses buckets available then to aid palatability.

My flock is on the  Heptavac- P system , MV Accredited and Fully Performance Recorded.

Please note they are not Scrapie Monitored, Enzo- vac or Toxo-vac’d

I am always happy discuss sheep on the telephone and even better to see you at Croxby and discuss your requirements.
