Society are keen to gather information and PHOTOS about how our members use the Border Leicester. Do you cross it or breed it pure? With lambing now either finished or well underway, it would great to get your views on how it's gone - lambing percentages, growth rates, mothering ability etc. Watch this space as we look to formally gather information to prove that the Border Leicester trully is the Great Improver of other breeds.

See below for a questionnaire and please do forward any of your photos and we'll put them on the Gallery page.
