Rough Fell Sheep Breeders' Association
Rough Fell Sheep are one of the three breeds of sheep native to Cumbria. They are one of the largest and hardiest hill breeds. Welcome to our website.
- Strong, hardy and long lived.
- Ideal for crossing.
- Excellent breeders of both mule lambs and prime lambs.
- The ewe is a perfect mother.
- Ewes are excellent milkers and easily rear two lambs, many of which are sold from their mothers at 16 weeks.
- Both horned and cross bred lambs prove popular with butchers.
- The wool is a high quality medium grade valuable fleece.
The Association has three districts; K for Kendal, S for Sedbergh and T for Tebay, Orton and Ravenstonedale. Members from anywhere are welcome to join and will be included in the K district group.
All registered rams have an Association ear tag, with a star, district letter and number.
