Welcome to Valais Blacknose Society.
The Valais Blacknose Society was founded in January 2021 following the merger of Valais Blacknose Sheep Society UK and Valais Blacknose Breed Society, both of which were established in 2015 soon after the first imported sheep arrived in the UK.
The society’s council comprises of elected members from across the UK who work to uphold society values and represent all members.
VBS is committed to promoting and raising awareness of this unique breed and strive to preserve and uphold the Swiss breed standards in conjunction with supporting and educating fellow breeders to continue producing quality stock.
