About Oxford SheepAbout Oxford Sheep

Oxford, also known as Oxford Down, Sheep are the largest and heaviest of the Down breeds. With a capacity for fast growing and early maturity, it is an ideal crossing ram, producing light carcasses in early lambing flocks earlier than its contemporaries and catching the market whilst prices are good. When kept for heavy lamb production, the heavier carcasses are produced without unwanted fat, being most suitable for today's market.
