Welcome to Lewis-Riehle Southdowns!

Lewis Southdowns has been in the purebred Southdowns sheep Industry since 1938, making our flock one of the oldest in North America.

We are always striving to improve our flock and operations by bringing in the finest genetics possible. We are currently using Artificial Insemination with semen imported from New Zealand and are Embryo Transferring our top Stud Ewes.

We have Semen for sale on our Top Stud rams. Look for us at many of the sales or shows. We love showing you our sheep operation or just visiting.
