Bio:

At Desert Weyr, we develop and implement sustainable systems to conserve the rare and endangered animals that provide so much for us. Our primary goals are the conservation of genetic resources and promotion of sustainable agriculture systems. We are focused on the conservation of Black Welsh Mountain sheep and maintaining the existing genetic diversity within North America. Our conserved farm on Garvin Mesa in Paonia, Colorado is home to one of the largest flocks of purebred, registered, performance recorded Black Welsh Mountain sheep in North America. Our stock are double registered in both the US and UK and we record all of our animals with the National Sheep Improvement Program (NSIP) for breeding value calculations. We maintain 3 of the 8 known bloodline clusters of Black Welsh sheep in North America. We produce animal products in a humane and environmentally friendly way. We provide our food and fiber animals with a healthy life and a quick humane death. We manage our pastures in a sustainable fashion designed to improve soil fertility and the farm environment.
