Commercial Breeding

As well as being used for pedigree breeding, Kerry Hill ewes and rams are ideal for cross-breeding to produce a more-commercial sheep. 

Last year, one Kerry Hill breeder used a ram from the Withy Flock on some Easycare ewes. They produced some fantastic lambs, some of which are shown in the picture below. The four lambs in the photograph were all ewe lambs and the ewe reared them all with no supplementary bottle feeding! This year the ewe had triplets.
