society

The Romney Sheep Breeders Society represents the interests of Romney breeders across the UK, offering registration and marketing services to pedigree and commercial breeders alike.

The Romney Society established in 1895, is the oldest and original Romney Society. It is one of the first sheep breeders’ society’s in the United Kingdom and was formed to record and register Romney pedigree breeding stock

There is an annual breeding sheep sale, the Romney Sheep Breeders Day held at Ashford Market every September.

Representatives of the society attend shows and events throughout the UK promoting the breed and its benefits.

An annual farm walk is held which is a great opportunity for members and non-members to meet, chat and see Romneys in their environment.

Council members meet four times a year and there is an Annual General Meeting held every spring.
