The Poll Dorset is a short wool, meat producing animal, and is by far the most popular of the terminal sire breeds for the production of prime lambs.  The only sheep that can be breed all year round.

The traditional short wool Downland breed which achieved success as an integral part of the Downland sheep-corn farming system until the early 1900's. It was noted for fine wool, good meat and cross breeding, but after the First World War it was affected by changes in farming methods, the ploughing of the Downland and the desire for longer, more commercial carcasses. These days this 'teddy bear'faced breed is classified as a rare breed by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust,but it is still commercially used for cross breeding.


Originally renowned as a producer of mutton, the breed has developed over the years to match consumer demands. Suffolks are now found throughout the world's sheep producing countries. They are the flag-ship breed in the British Isles and recognised as the leading terminal sire on a variety of ewes to produce top quality prime lamb.  


The Texel breed is famed for its exceptional carcass qualities, which has made the Texel the dominant terminal sire breed in the UK. In recent years the breed’s hardiness and adaptability has been recognised by upland and hill producers who use the Texel to their advantage by breeding store lambs and cross bred females and these increasingly replace traditional hill breeds with a more marketable product.
