Aims and Objectives

The Group will work to support Manx Loaghtan sheep breeders and those who are interested in Manx Loaghtan sheep and will promote Manx Loaghtan sheep generally, in close association with the Rare Breeds Survival Trust “RBST” and the Manx Loaghtan Sheep Breed Society on the Isle of Man by:

Demonstrating the full potential and versatility of Manx Loaghtan sheep including as a commercially viable sheep, as a producer of meat and wool and as a conservation grazer;

Encouraging compliance with appropriate and satisfactory procedures for the registration of pedigree Manx Loaghtan stock in the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and abroad;

Defining Manx Loaghtan breed characteristics encouraging genetic diversity within those characteristics;

Insofar as the Group is reasonably able to do, the Group will use its best endeavours to ensure the defined breed characteristics are applied in the context of the birth notification and registration of pedigree stock and at shows and in all breed promotion.

Manx Loaghtan Sheep Breeders’ Group

The Manx Loaghtan Sheep Breeders’ Group works to promote this primitive rare breed of sheep, and the wool and meat products from them.
