Pedigree Bluefaced Leicester Sheep

Flock History

In 2010 we purchased the entire Grugoer flock of recorded Blue Faced Leicesters as the demand for the breed was evident in the area. Since then we have added to the flock with purchases from the renowned Cassington and Craig yr Orsedd flocks. We made the decision that if we were to breed Blue rams it must be on the same system as the rest of the sheep at Logie Durno. Therefore the whole flock lambs in April with everything being entirely out wintered. Any animals that need additional assistance have been culled and the difference in the flock in such a short time period is remarkable.

All lambs are reared outside with no concentrate feed being given to either the lambs or the ewes. We select on traditional Blue qualities whilst also taking into account the hardiness of the animal and its ability to thrive without any additional assistance. We have tried to purchase the best rams we can find for the flock, these can be viewed on the stock sires page. In 2012 our 112 lambs recorded had an average index of 110, placing them on average well within the top 25% of the breed for signet index.

TESTIMONIAL: Philip Stewart, Keith “We have bought Blue Faced Leicester rams from Logie Durno for three years now and the biggest thing for us is that the rams are long and wide across the back, which we think is important for producing big framed ewe lambs that lamb easily.
Also the rams have not lost any condition, and are leaving an even bunch of lambs with some great skins and nice markings”.
