Whitefaced Woodland Sheep
A Breed from the past .... a breed for the future

Sales of Whitefaced Woodland Sheep

The Ken Wild Trophy

The biggest sale of Whitefaced Woodlands is held on the last Saturday of September, recently at Bretton Mill Farm, Haigh, near Barnsley or at Holmfirth.  At least 250 Woodlands – mainly unregistered sheep – change hands.  Rams are judged before the sale begins, and the winners are assured of excellent prices.  The Champion is awarded the magnificent Ken Wild trophy, in memory of the renowned Woodland breeder.  The Auctioneers are William Sykes & Co. of Holmfirth (01484 683543).
