Miss Michelle Lakey

I am a freelance shepherdess based in Norfolk.

After using this breed for many years on commercial ewes, I decided to start my own pedigree flock in 2015.

I sell all my tups as shearlings off the farm to new and returning customers and keep the majority of my ewes for my own flock. I also use my own rams to breed my commercial ewe replacements by crossing them with mules. They have proved to be very milky and good maternal ewes.

I believe the Berrichons are a very underrated breed with their ability for easy lambing, good get-up and go and ability to finish quickly.

I look forward to judging at the Three Counties Show in June.
