North Country Chevior Mules
We bought a Blue Faced Leicester ram a year ago and bred him to ten NCC ewe lambs. The rest of our new acquired ewe lambs were still too small to breed but the ten were over 120 lbs so we felt they were okay for breeding.
When they lambed in May I was amazed at the size of the lambs. They were lovely, very vigorous lambs and in minutes were up and nursing. In no time they were bounding around. They went out to the pasture sooner than the Clun Forest lambs mainly due to the fact we had the NCC lamb 6 weeks later so the weather was much warmer.
