How do I obtain some of these sheep?
The best way to find some of these sheep is to speak to the Secretary, who can then put you in touch with a breeder in your area or let you know of a sale.
We can allocate a mentor to new keepers if they so wish, so that they may have a point of contact for advice on keeping this wonderful breed, once again speak to the Secretary.
How do I know if a Greyface Dartmoor sheep is registered with the Greyface Dartmoor Sheep Breeders Association?
This is a question we are often asked. All registered Greyface Dartmoor sheep are issued with a small metal tag. This denotes the year of birth on one side and the DSBA flock number and the individual number of the female sheep on the other side.
From 2018 onward, the female tags are plastic set tags. These tags state the year born and the flock number that the lamb is born into. The individual ID relates to the UK tag.
2018 = white
2019 = pink
2020 = green
2021 = purple
