kelso. x Romney
These sheep are bred by crossing high-performance Kelso Maternals with our own hill-bred stud Romney ewes.
This introduces the rapid boost in performance associated with composite sheep, but incorporates the structural soundness, conformation, constitution, and survival bred into our own Romney ewes.
The Kelso x Romneys scan tremendously well and the lambs are thick and meaty, but with more bone than the straight Maternals.
This programme is going well enough we plan to put more Romney right through our Kelso Maternal flock and roll both the Kelso Maternal and Kelso Romney into one.
