Greyface Dartmoor Sheep Classifieds

WE CANNOT EMPHASIS ENOUGH, BUYERS  BEWARE!   PLEASE CHECK THE SHEEP BEFORE YOU PART WITH YOUR CASH, CHECK THE SHEEP OVER. CHECK TEETH, UDDERS/TESTICLES AND FEET.  CHECK THE TAGS, CHECK THEY ARE WHAT YOU ANTICIPATED. IF YOU ARE UNCERTAIN PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.

There continues to be a strong demand for females, if you are a member of the DSBA you may post for sale and wanted on this site. Please contact the Secretary to place an advert.

Prospective purchasers please be aware that the vast majority of registered sheep will have a small METAL ear tag bearing just 4 numbers if it is a ram and a sequence of numbers and letters similar to this: DM2009/073/01 if it is a female. However, from 2018 on, pedigree females are identified by a colour coded plastic tag with the year of birth and the flock number. Some rams born in 2020 were tagged with green plastic tags with the 4 numbers identifying the ram. Without the correct tag, the sheep cannot be considered pedigree (there are a few exceptions) and are not eligible for registration with the Association. The Association does not offer a grading up scheme for non-pedigree sheep.
