Surplus Sheep Sales

Each year 3000 to 3500 of surplus Grogansworth blood commercial flock sheep are available for sale. These include one year old wether lambs and older surplus wethers off shears in July and classed 14 month old ewes and cast for age ewes in December/January. Some surplus classed ewes joined to terminal sires may also be offered during the year. All Grogansworth sheep are bred with their sale value as fertile wool and meat producers in mind.
