    Red face Most prolific Cheviot or Perth Blackface ?

    Just curious as to which would be the most prolific and give the most lambs with Texel cross ewes the Cheviot x Telex ewe or the Blackface (Perth or Lanark) x Texel ewe
    ?

    I thought that would be down to the ewe and how well she's flushed pre-tupping.

    Texel cross belclare ewes. I want to know which hill ram to cross them with to give me a nice hill cross ewe for outdoor lambing. Either the Cheviot or the Perth Scottish blackface. I will keep all the ewe lambs to build my flock from that type of hill ewe, I will be running these ewes on lowland fields.
    I have heard that the Hilltex is calmer than the cheviot cross ewe.
