About Bluefaced Leicester SheepAbout Bluefaced Leicester Sheep



The Bluefaced Leicester is the single most significant sheeprnbreed in the UK today, with nearly 50% of the UK's commercial breeding flockrnbeing sired by the Bluefaced Leicester. Of the remaining  50%  aroundrnhalf are being mated with  Bluefaced Leicester rams to produce Mule ewes.rnThe great strength of the Blueface, is that no matter what breed of sheep it’srncrossed with, its progeny the Mule proves a better commercial ewe than itsrnmother. The Bluefaced Leicester’s improve prolificacy, mothering ability, easernof management and most importantly financial return. The breed started inrnNorthumberland around 100 years ago. Over the last half century the breed hasrnspread all over the UK, especially into Scotland and Wales where, in the lastrnten years, some of the breeds top stock has been produced.
