    hi there
    I am very interested in the zwartble breed and i am considering on purchasing a zwartble ram for use on half of my flock this year,

    So I was just wondering, at the dungannon sale on augest 2nd, can a local farmer like myself purchase zwartble sheep, or are they only for export sale to the south?
    also, can any flock holder purchase from these speaclist sales like a ordinary weekly sheep sale? or is there anything you need in order to purchase them?
    Many Thanks

      Yes anyone can purchase from these sales and it would be wonderful if more commercial or (Normal) sheep breeders found out what wonderful maternal sires Zwartbles are. Please do go to one or both of the Zwartbles sales.

    I already have some zwartbles and would like to source some more. Are there more sales planned for this year in Ireland North or South. The breed has amazed me and it is the leanest sweetest meat Ive ever eaten.

      There are 2 sales up in Northern Ireland both at the Ballymena Livestock Mart a sale of pedigree Zwartbles in-lamb and all female sale on Monday 11th November 2013 and then another on on Monday 25th November for commercial Zwartbles. I do not think there will be any more Zwartbles sales in Southern Ireland this year. Look at the Zwartbles breeders list on this website for a breeder near you who might have some stock for sale. I will be having 5 -6 in lamb ewes for sale later this year once they have been scanned in lamb if your interested.
