I don't think you can state they don't get fly strike. I had a few last year either with eggs on or a few maggots on. Some were clean and only noticed cos I had a dirty one to dag.


It might be down to weather as I am in Wiltshire and it's warmer than Scotland but it does happen.

we have had these sheep for 10 years and have never had a case the breed standard states they rarely get fly strike,any things possible though,doesnt affect the advert that there is a starter flock for sale and they are good sheep for smallholders .
