The North Country Cheviot Sheep Society
The North Country Cheviot Breeders Association was formed in 1912 for the purpose of holding shows and sales in Caithness and Sutherland.
In 1945 this Association was re-constituted into the existing North Country Cheviot Sheep Society.
The Society was set up to promote the interests of the, by now widely dispersed breed, on an international basis. Ram registration was introduced and an Annual Flock Book, giving details of pure bred flocks, published.
Because of the increasing importance and popularity of the Hill Type of North Country Cheviot a separate Hill Register was established in 1981.
There are now around 150 breeders in this register and their stock consistently command high prices at Lairg, Dingwall and Lockerbie, the main centres for hill sheep.
