Border Leicester Cross
Below are photos of our Border
Leicester Cross lambs. Our cross lamb program started with SuDan Farm Goober
(below), a very
handsome, gentle and slightly plump Border Leicester ram. We started using
Goober on some of our Jacob and Navajo-Churro girls who just
weren't producing the purebred quality lambs we were looking for. Since
most of these girls were older and were friends of the family (i.e., Karen wasn't
willing to part with them) we decided to find a way they could stay and still
contribute to the farm income. We lost Goober last year at ten years of
age so his last lambs
were born in 2012. This year's cross lambs were sired Goober's son, Rollo, a white ram who is
1/2 Border Leicester x 1/2 Navajo-Churro
Crossing a Border Leicester ram with
our Jacob and Navajo-Churro ewes gives us fast growing lambs that carry the
distinctive Border Leicester head and confirmation, making it impossible to
mistake any of the resulting lambs as purebreds. Their fleeces are quite
nice and range in character from medium with crimp, to long and lustrous.
They're a great option for people who
just want to produce a few lambs every year for fiber and/or meat. They
terrific lawn mowers, fiber producers and market/meat lambs
