North Country Cheviot Crosses

The CHEVIOT MULE

Prolificacy & Quality Lambs - 'the best of both worlds'

The Cheviot Mule - the progeny of the Bluefaced Leicester ram and the North Country Cheviot ewe - is a high performance ewe ideally suited to cost-effective prime lamb production.

The prolificacy and milkiness of the Bluefaced Leicester along with the hardiness and thriftiness of the North Country Cheviot results in an easily kept top quality commercial ewe.

The Cheviot Mule crossed with the Down or Continental terminal sires produces fast-growing prime lambs of superior conformation and finish.
