North Country Cheviot Ewes can thrive in a wide range of different grazing situations and are bred pure in many parts of Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales.
Hardy, healthy & long-living, hill North Country Cheviot ewes are found on some of the hardest and most inhospitable ground in Scotland.
They are particularly kind mothers, easy to handle at lambing time, with few lambing problems. Their lambs are always in demand at the autumn sales, both for breeding and feeding.
They can produce quality lambs under the most rigorous and demanding conditions and are also noted for their longevity.
Draft hill ewes are sold to lower ground farms at about five years old and consistently prove great performers, producing another two or three crops of lambs.
Most flocks have a high health status with very many being EAE accredited.
