Hill Radnor Sheep are a native hill or mountain breed most
commonly found in the Border counties running from the North of Powys down to
South West Herefordshire and Monmouthshire. It is a heavy breed which has good
body length and width in its hind quarters, standing on well set legs with an
abundance of bone. At birth the lambs are full of vitality, exceptionally well
coated and gain excellent body weight. Lambing percentages vary under different
conditions but the breed can easily average around 155%. The Hill Radnor is a
healthy breed free from many of the contagious and hereditary diseases which
often affect other breeds.
