Performance Measuring and Recording


Flock Performance Measuring and Recording has become very useful tool in the selection of stock. Some breeders do it simply in house whilst others use schemes that are available to help them.

You will see at sales that breeders are now displaying this information alongside their animals on the pens.

The Society Breed Development Committee is always looking at ways to improve this tool to ensure the breeder and the breed is benefiting. In an ideal world we would like every ewe to have two lambs and rear them to more than her own body weight, this is what most of us are striving for.

  • A ewe performance scheme to help improve flock efficiency
  • Available FREE OF CHARGE to members of the LLEYN SHEEP SOCIETY
  • Based on simple weight ratios of lamb weight to ewe weight (weight of lambs divided by weight of ewe)
  • LLEYN GOLD grades correlate with commercial performance
  • Favours medium sized ewes rearing twins
  • Using LLEYN GOLD grades (GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE and UNCLASSIFIED) may help you make more informed decisions about which stock to retain and which to cull.
