Romney 2000

This scheme, started in 1992 by the Romney Sheepbreeders, was used to introduce better carcase traits in to the Romney by using terminal sires and then breeding back to the Romney. (The Coopworth was created in New Zealand in similar fashion and UK Meatlinc breeders have used the method recently). This concept, sometimes called “gene fishing” has been nurtured in our flock.

In the last few years, we have been working with other Romney breeders as the Romney High Index Group to produce even higher quality, high performance rams. We have also been testing our lambs for resistance to worm infestation using FEC and IgA salivary testing.
