The Lukyns Flock

The Lukyns flock was founded in 2003 by John & Sarah Dunsdon with the purchase of a group of ewe lambs from Mr Ticklers Kelby Flock which was established back in 1968 and being one of the oldest flocks.

The flock is managed on permanent grassland in the Surrey Hills in an Environmentally Sensitive Area by Sarah Dunsdon.

We decided to use rams from Mr Jim Dufosees Blackhill flock these were to be the backbone in generating the Lukyns Flock in 2004.

What kind of stock do we have?

We are regular exhibitors at a number of shows and are delighted that our Rams and Ewes have been winners in both the Poll Dorset and Mixed Classes, winning Breed.Championships and Best in Show.

All our ewe replacements are home bred and we sell pedigree registered Ram and Ewe Lambs throughout the year, each supplied with an individual record card.

Introduction to Dorset Horn & Poll Dorset Sheep

  • The British Sheep Industry is experiencing times that were not thought possible a few years ago. These are challenging times indeed for the flock-master who has to face increased costs and lower profit margins. What can he do to protect his interests and face the future with hope?

    In the 18 th and early 19 th centuries the ewes pregnant from the ram in April would be walked to the sheep fairs in September where buyers from as far away as Edinburgh would buy the in-lamb ewes to satisfy the demands for the Christmas dinner table..

    If you are looking for a sheep that is adaptable to any climate or altitude, with a fleece that many breeds would like to aspire to, then this is your sheep. The sheep will provide a regular cash flow by producing lambs frequently, if you wish, three times in two years. It has an economically produced carcass sought after by the retailer and housewife, whose discerning taste is the ultimate challenge.

    If you prefer cross breeding, choose a ewe or ram that will pass many of the above characteristics on to its first cross females, hence improving your profit margins on your existing stock.

    If this is your aim look no further than the Dorset Horn and Poll Dorset Sheep. As the new Millennium gets under way so the Dorset Horn and Poll Dorset Sheep Breeders' Association goes from strength to strength towards new frontiers, promoting the ultimate breed in the twenty first century.
