Romney Sheep

Te Taumata Romneys are highly productive, hardy sheep bred with a balanced approach to trait selection. The real strength of Te Taumata Romney genetics is their constitution and soundness and rapid lamb growth to prime killable weights.

Border Leicester Sheep

Te Taumata Border Leicesters are bred for constitution and thickness and are an ideal maternal and terminal crossbreeding option. Romney/Border Leicester crossbred ewes make top mothers. Romney/Border Leicester crossbred lambs fatten quickly and achieve heavy, high yielding carcass weights.
