North Country Cheviot Sheep Society
In 1912 breeders in Caithness and Sutherland formed the North Country Cheviot Breeders Association for the purpose of holding shows and sales. After the Second World War, in 1945, this association was reformed into the existing North Country Cheviot Sheep Society. The Society was set up to promote the interests of the widely dispersed breed. Ram registration was introduced and an annual Flock Book, giving details of all pure bred flocks, published.
At present there are around 550 members of the Society in the British Isles, spread throughout the country.
The popularity of the breed continues to grow – a testament to it’s proven track record of producing what the market demands – quality and value without compromise.
The ‘Northie’ is the complete all rounder, a native breed which thrives in all parts of the UK, and one which truly has withstood the test of time.
