Bluefaced Leicesters make great kids’ sheep. They are gentle, easy to handle, and very people oriented.
BLU has an active group of young people, and we value them tremendously as our future!
Just this fall, BLU added a new position to the board – the Youth Board Advisor. This person will attend board meetings representing our BLU youth, and also will have a seat on the youth committee. The position is open to all current BLU youth members, and there is an application for any one interested.
We offer a scholarship program, and support the Youth Conservationist Program, which we work with to match a donated BFL ewe to a deserving young person each year during the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.
