Balwen Welsh Mountain Sheep Society

Promoting Balwen Welsh Mountain Sheep since 1985.

- Balwen Welsh Mountain Sheep originate from one small area of Wales - the Tywi vally. Because of this, during the disastrous winter of 1947, the breed was nearly wiped out. The breed was at its lowest ebb, with only one ram surviving.

During the 1950's and 60's a steady increase took place, and in the 1970's people outside the valley began to take an interest in the breed. The Balwen Welsh Mountain Breed Society was formed in 1985.
