Hightrip Oxford Downs

Flock No 1185 Established 2006

Foundation stock from Barley Park, Blackden and Applewick flocks.

We have a small, quality flock of Oxfords which we run alongside commercial sheep.
We have great results crossing our Oxford rams onto Cheviot, Beulah and Jacob ewes,
producing large, tasty lambs with good conformation.

Our aim is always to produce healthy, hardy Oxfords reared outdoors and primarily on grass.
We only keep the best for breeding and sale.

Rams used in 2016: Hightrip Oliver and Monkstone Mabon.

Photos of Hightrip-bred Oxfords are shown below.
