The Whitefaced Woodland is a beautiful, hardy breed that has evolved to thrive in a harsh upland environment, but pedigree registrations are declining and the unique genetics of the breed are under threat. Breeders are working hard to promote Whitefaced Woodlands to commercial farmers and smallholders and RBST wishes to purchase sheep with diverse genetics which can be used to help maintain the special qualities of this breed.
RBST will work to encourage people to register stock by setting up a genetically diverse breeding flock; whose progeny could be used nationally to improve the genetic health of the breed.
