So many of these MoD_RSS posts get minimal views (apart from a few noticeable exceptions).

This one, however, if you follow the link, also provides a handy pdf download all about British sheep - really worth taking a look at. Did you know, for example that:

Border Leicester – ‘The great improver’. The oldest improved English breed being in existence for over 200 years. Today rams are crossed with mountain and hill breeds to create various ‘Halfbreds’, which in turn are crossed with terminal sires to create good quality lambs. The Border Leicester is another key link in the stratified sheep industry of England. The ewes are good mothers with plenty of milk and produce quick growing lambs.
It's information like this that keeps me coming back to this site time and again.
