About Meatlinc SheepAbout Meatlinc Sheep

Meatlinc Sheep are a British breed, in the terminal sire category, developed from a breeding program originated by Henry Fell in 1963. Originally a mixture of chosen individuals from five breeds, two British and three French, the Meatlinc evolved as a result of many years of rigorous and disciplined selection based on performance recording carried out under strictly commercial conditions.The breed was closed to any further use of outside genetic material in 1975. It is thus a genuine pure breed with recognizable uniformity.

They are amongst the biggest of the British breeds, a mature ram weighing 140 kg (over 300 lbs). Their face is white, have tight wool, with great length and heavy hindquarters.
