Breeding Romney Sheep in South West Scotland
Welcome to Viewfield Romneys.
Here on our family run farming enterprise in Dumfries and Galloway, we believe in running a farming business that achieves sustainability, profitability and a healthy work life balance.
Thanks to our New Zealand Romneys and our unique, NZ inspired system, we feel we have managed to achieve this goal here at Viewfield.
If you’re looking to make some changes to your farming enterprise, are looking for some new genetics or simply want to find out more about the Viewfield Romney, we’d love to share our experience and knowledge with you and help you achieve your own farming goals.
The Viewfield Romney
Our overriding aim is to farm profitably without any subsidy while making things as simple as possible. We aim to strike a sustainable work-life balance while constantly learning and introducing more interesting attributes to our farming practises.
We run 2,800 Romney ewes, 1,000 hoggets,
100 Luing cows on our 2,500 acre grass/hill farm.
About Viewfield Romneys
Over the last 30 years we have drawn on our experience of living in New Zealand and on our family ties to that country. With the help, knowledge and expertise of top New Zealand breeders, we have designed our own system. This along with the availability of semen has put us at the top of a very successful genetic breeding system.
"We had a Romney ram from Viewfield that we put over Lleyn ewes. He was quick to work and kept his condition throughout tupping. The lambs were born on the hill and quick to their feet, no shepherd intervention required! Cracking lambs, some of the best we bred."Read More
