Nipna Troy (Black shearling) was retained from the 2022 crop of lambs born at Nipna. We pride ourselves on selecting the very best and only seek to run on the very best examples to this age. He was destined to join the show team before being selected for export of frozen ram semen to North America. He is sired by Lyvennet Quick out of a Gedgrave sired West End ewe.

The Nipna Flock of Wensleydale Sheep was established in 2008 and they currently run 30 pedigree white ewes and 5 black ewes at any one time. They have won many major awards over the years including the Great Yorkshire Championship, Breeder of the year and Fleece trophies. They aim to keep a healthy flock that stand up both as a carcass as well as a fleece producer.
