Bluefaced Leicester Sheep For Sale

Beechtree Farm has an outstanding selection of purebred Bluefaced Leicester ewes, rams, and lambs available in both white and natural colored for your purebred and fleece flocks, as well as for commercial crossing sires. Our adult ewes are proven dams with progeny records available to prospective buyers. Our available rams are utilized in both our purebred, as well as our commercial 'Mule' flock with selection emphasis based on their ability to stamp their genetics on their progeny. We strive to produce purebred stock of the highest quality available in the USA, with rigid selection based on progeny performance and conforming to the breed standard.

Our goal is to preserve and produce purebred Bluefaced Leicesters which exhibit the outstanding qualities and traits which has made it the UK's # 1 sire of commercial ewes for prime grass fed lamb production. To this end Beechtree has elected not to follow the current USA trend of creating a sheep with greater range of fleece colors and patterns, or of increasing the fiber micron diameter and fleece weights. We are committed in our efforts to maintaining a purebred flock, and we will forego the use of the available crossbred domestic & imported bloodlines in our Bluefaced Leicester flock.

For complete lists of our available Bluefaced Leicester ewes, rams, and lambs, click on the page navigation buttons above.

Bluefaced Leicester Sires

The lamb pictured below is the progeny of a Cocklaw F1 female bred to a Rossiebank F1 sire.

Our breeding goals are to produce Bluefaced Leicesters that conform to the breed standard and type, while exhibiting sound structure and excellent fleece traits that work for the purebred breeder, as well as the commercial Mule ewe producer.

2010 Lambs

Lambing is finally finished and we have an excellent crop of Bluefaced Leicesters that represent some of the best genetics the UK has to offer.
We will have lambs and yearlings available that carry the Cocklaw T1, and the Rossiebank X3 bloodlines, as well as our previously imported lines, in both white & natural colored.
Sired by a CarryHouse V2 blend (on the left) and by a Rossiebank F1 ( on the right)
