BFL History

 In the late 1800's to Early 1900's Bluefaced Leicester's were developed in Hexham Northumberland England. The Bluefaced Leicester's are one of the three Leicester's in the United States: The Bluefaced Leicester, Border Leicester, and the English Leicester Longwool. Out of those three breed the Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) holds the finest fleece.

Why are BFL's important?

BFL's produce a large amount of high-quality wool each year. Their wool is very fine and makes for high-quality fleeces to spin. Although wool is the primary use of BFL's, they are a dual purpose breed, which means that they can also be raised for their meat.
