Our Favoured breeds
Welsh Hill Lamb
Welsh Hill is the finest Welsh PGI brand for export markets, depicting the values of distinction and superior quality. Our suppliers trained fieldsmen only source livestock from the lush green pastures of the Welsh hills and valleys for our Welsh Hill brand where they are allowed to graze freely.
The Southdown bred will produce a fast growing prime lamb in record time. Crossed on any breed of ewe the resulting lamb will have a carcass of fine conformation and high grade if marketed correctly and it will pass on its superb conformation to its offspring and thrive and maintain its muscle density when other breeds would likely suffer. Furthermore this breed is incredibly docile and easy to handle, and is an ideal sheep for small or large flocks. A good Southdown should catch the eye with its alertness and balanced appearance.
Southdowns are an excellent carcass breed and their meat is unequalled in tenderness and flavour. Southdown’s have won the carcass division at the Livestock Awards.

Lamb is a rich source of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin B12, iron, Zinc and many more. Please find nutrional facts and health benefits of eating lamb below:
Vitamin B12: Important for blood formation and the function of the brain, vitamin B12 is only found in animal-derived foods, and is absent from vegan diets. Deficiency in vitamin B12 may cause anemia and neurological damage.
Selenium: Meat is often a rich source of selenium, although this depends on the feed of the source animal. Selenium has various important functions in the body.
Zinc: Found in high amounts in lamb, zinc is usually much better absorbed from meat than plants. It is an essential mineral that is important for growth and the formation of hormones.
Niacin: Also called vitamin B3, niacin serves a variety of important functions in the body. Inadequate intake of niacin has been linked with increased risk of heart disease.
Phosphorus: phosphorus is essential for body growth and maintenance.
Iron: Lamb is a rich source of iron, mostly in form of heme iron, which is highly bioavailable and is absorbed more efficiently than non-heme iron found in plants.
