ROMNEY HISTORY & PURPOSE
Romneys originated in the marshy area of Kent England.  It's these origins
that lead to Romney's individual characteristics, they are resistant to foot rot,
and the fleece will remain healthy in harsh weather.  This breed is a true dual
purpose breed and can be found in every type of farming atmosphere.  Once
weaned the Romney lambs can be turned out on to pasture to finish maturing,
it is here they convert pasture to lean, high quality carcasses with heavy
hanging weights that usually grade prime or choice.  Romney meat is mild and
delicate in taste even in older lambs.  The fleece is lustrous, with minimal
cross fibers with a high yield and easily spun.  Typically the Romney fleece is
the finest in fiber diameter of all the long wooled breeds.  In addition to all
these wonderful traits they are known to be calmer and more level headed then
some other breeds.  If you would like to continue to learn about the history of
the Romney breed I encourage you to check out the
Breeders association!
