Border Leicester

Border Leicester

Following more than a decade of research conducted with a migratory band of 1,400 Western-whiteface ewes, and rams of three different breeds, Professor Lyle G. McNeal of Utah State University deemed the Border Leicester “a breed grossly underrated and tough enough to function under the West’s harsh range conditions.” A true dual-purpose maternal breed, the Border Leicester has always been popular throughout the world for crossbreeding, most notably in the British Isles and also in Australia where the Border Leicester x Merino ewe has proven to be the backbone of that country’s prime lamb industry.

INSTRUCTIONS: If you put cursor over a pin and click the breeders information will appear. On some of the breeders maps the pins are so close together on the zoomed out map that you can not see all the pins marking individual breeders. For those situations I recommend clicking on the blue words below the map to see a larger version that also shows the list of breeders in alphabetical order along the side.
