Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the
Hampshire Down Sheep Breeders’ Association (UK).

The Hampshire Down is a UK native, terminal sire breed. Hampshire sired lambs are easy-care with easy lambing. The lambs are quick to suckle and robust, with tight skins making them hardy from a very early age. They will finish quickly on grass with no concentrates. The carcass is well fleshed with one of the highest eye muscle scores of any breed. The Hampshire Ram is long lived and vigorous and is able to cover a good number of ewes each season.
