The Duxmore Black Welsh Mountain Flock was founded in 2010, with the purchase of foundation stock from the Monnow Flock in Herefordshire and a stock Ram from the Wappingthorne Flock in Sussex.
We are looking to add a stock ram in 2013, as we have kept back some females from the current chap, Wappingthorne Montgomery.
We are one of the few BWM flocks who are accredited within the Maeidi Visna Health scheme but this was essential to us to ensure the flock can fit in with the Suffolks on the farm, removing the need for total segregation.
The stock ram, nicknamed Monty, is somewhat of a local celebrity, being pictured at local shows with our keen young stockman, Rory. Rory and Monty have appeared in the local papers, as well as much of the promotional material and web site, for the Royal Isle of Wight Agricultural Show.
We have been pleased with Black Welsh Mountains easy management and their meaty carcasses. Although this is a smaller breed, it is an excellent meat breed and an ideal smallholders sheep too.
We have Rams and Ram Lambs available for sale.
