The Wicklow Mountain Sheep Breeders Society
The Wicklow Mountain Sheep Breeders Society has three main objectives:
To encourage the breeding and conservation of Wicklow Mountain Sheep and to maintain the sheep as a pure breed
To increase the prolificacy and quality of the breed
To arrange special sales of pure-bred sheep and promote the dissemination of information about the breed
In order to ensure the uniformity and quality of Wicklow Mountain Sheep are upheld, flock inspections are conducted by competent judges who are keen breeders . Members of the Wicklow Mountain Sheep Breeders Society keep their sheep to the highest possible standard, only using registered pedigree Wicklow mountain rams for breeding.
The Society holds annual Sales of Purebred Registered Rams in October in Blessington, Co Wicklow and Stranorlar, Co Donegal where hundreds of Rams are exhibited and sold.
