About Ryeland Sheep



Ryelands are the smalholders dream.

The Ryeland is an easily managed dual purpose native breed sheep, used as a terminal sire, suitable for crossing in commercial flocks, and an ideal breed for the smallholder. Pure bred lambs have vigorous growth, reaching 50kg in six months on grass alone.

They are very friendly, the rams are easy to handle and the ewes are superb Mums. They stay in the field you put them in and so much more.
