North Country Cheviot Sheep

North Country Cheviot Sheep  North Country Cheviot Sheep


The North Country Cheviot is a breed that has been widely used in the north of England and Scotland for several centuries. They are independent sheep, strong willed, vigorous and very hardy in harsh climates and rough pasture. They are best suited to pasture based systems where the management is not intensive.

The ewes exhibit superior mothering instincts and deliver lambs easily. The lambs are vigorous at birth with excellent survivability. Although they only demonstrate an average rate of gain, the carcass quality is very good with an above average yield percentage. North Country rams are often used in crossbreeding programs to pass on the maternal strengths of the breed as well as to produce desirable carcasses.


La North Country Cheviot est une race qui a été largement utilisée au nord de l'Angleterre et de l'Écosse pendant plusieurs siècles. C'est un mouton indépendant, à caractère fort, vigoureux et très robuste dans des climats arides et des pâturages accidentés. Les North Country Cheviot s'adaptent mieux aux systèmes basés sur le pâturage où la gestion n'est pas intensive. Les brebis ont un instinct maternel développé et ont des agnelages faciles. Les agneaux sont vigoureux à la naissance et ont de bons taux de survie. Bien qu'ils démontrent une vitesse de croissance moyenne, la qualité de leurs carcasses est très bonne avec un pourcentage de rendement au-dessus de la moyenne. Des béliers North Country Cheviot sont souvent utilisés dans les schémas de croisement dans le but de transmettre tant les caractéristiques maternelles que bouchères de la race.
