Australians widely support the Border Leicester!

Did you know the majority of Australian lamb is produced from a Border Leicester X Merino ewe. The use of the Border Leicester produces ewes with

  • superior maternal and meat producing traits
  • top quality lambs that grow rapidly to heavy weights
  • far superior skin than the merino alone

Although the Border Leicesters origins are very much British, it's impact on the Australian Sheep industry has been enormous. For further fascinating facts about how the Australians value the Border Leicester, please refer the the website
