The Wiltshire sheep breed is most recognised for it’s ability to annually shed its fleece, have no dags, it’s large lean carcase and naturally high fecundity. These traits are why Wiltshires are one of the main ingredient breeds within Morrison farming’s Ezicare composite sheep flock (numbering over 4,000 ewes).
