The Purpose of the Breed

The Crossing Sire

The breed was developed to provide a superior crossing sire of high performance cross bred daughters.

The cross bred daughter of a British Milksheep ram will achieve high lambing yields (200+%) and have good milk yield to support her lambs including triplets.

A Dairying Ewe

The purebred British Milksheep ewe is used also as a dairying ewe (although not originally developed for this purpose).

The ewe is robust with yields ranging from 150 to 400+ litres per lactation.  A sensible average to assume is 250 litres per lactation with a 180-200 day lactation period and six lactations per ewe.
