Zwartbles flock 009 Both flocks MV accredited
Mendip Charollais and Zwartbles Flocks have both been in existance since the very start of each breed , The flocks were started through personal importations from the best commercial and pedigree lines in both France and Holland , All sheep are reared at grass only in the first year (mostly old permanent pasture) almost without exception , and most of the following selling year as well , to build proper rumens for long life , and to allow lambs to develop natural immunity to common environmental issues and to allow us to make future female selections based on actual performance at grass only , All lambs are assessed at killing weight and beyond and graded any not meeting good commercial specification are sent on .
We used to show both breeds with great success at larger county/ national shows like the Royal of England ,Bath and west , Three counties , Royal cornwall etc but felt this was not really the way forward for developing flocks of hard ,commercial producing animals that lasted a long time and who's offspring flesh easily from pasture only ,
We sell in excess of 80 rams every year ,usually to regular buyers straight off the farm with only a few offered for sale usually through local traditional type sale rings like Wilton , where we have quite a regular following .
We dont tend to sell at society events these days due to the amount of hard feeding required to compete with the rest , along with costs and time involved .
So if your looking for animals that dont fade away bred specifically for the commercial market and give excellent finished lambs give us a call
