The Welsh Mountain Sheep Society – Promoting the breed and a sustainable way of life in upland Wales


The Society has over 400 members, farming in some of the most difficult areas in Wales where it is essential to keep a special breed of sheep that is able to withstand the difficult climatic conditions. These sheep are the Welsh Mountain, a breed dating back to the Middle Ages, but one that is as relevant now and for the future as it ever was in the past. Unrivalled in its natural upland environment, its intrinsic qualities make it an ideal breed for lowland farms also.
