About Easycare SheepAbout Easycare Sheep



Easy Care Sheep are a revolutionary breed of sheep which requiresrnminimal shepherding and veterinary care, sheds its wool in the summer, does notrnneed shearing and yet offers excellent meat yields and lambing ratios. Thernbreed is now well established in Britain and abroad and is proving extremelyrnpopular and successful with breeders in today's farming environment. 


The guiding principle behind Easy Care isrnstraightforward. Centuries ago, sheep didn't naturally have huge fleeces,rnmerely a winter coat which was shed in springtime, as with most wild animals.rnHowever, man began to breed sheep for wool because of its value. In recentrntimes, the value of wool has fallen so dramatically that its production isrnuneconomic. Meat production without the overhead and extra shepherding requiredrnin wool production would be much more profitable.

rnrnrnrnBy using highly selective breeding to combine the rapidrngrowth rate, lambing quality, and other strengths of his naturally wool-lessrnpedigree Wiltshire Horn flock with the smaller, hardy Welsh Mountain andrncombining some of the strengths of other breeds, Iolo Owen has achieved hisrnaim: a breed of sheep with all the qualities sought after by the modern farmerrnwith fewer of the drawbacks.

rnrnrnrnAs well as being woolless, Easy Care are extremelyrnhardy, thrive on grass and inexpensive feeds, have a superb lambing ratio (180%rnis the average), and produce excellent meat.
