IMPORTANT UPDATE: Merger of UK Valais Blacknose Societies

We are pleased to announce that both Valais Blacknose Sheep Society UK (VBSSUK) and Valais Blacknose Sheep Breed Society will merge to form a single entity: Valais Blacknose Society, which will become the only recognised Valais Blacknose breed society in the UK. As a council we sincerely believe this is an exciting development for both UK societies and our members and a positive step forward in strengthening the breed. Valais Blacknose Society will be operational and accepting new memberships and legacy renewals from 1st January 2021 onwards.

The new society website will be found at and our social media presence will continue as the Valais Blacknose Society on Facebook and @ValaisBlacknoseSheep on Instagram from January 2021.


Thank you for your continued support.


We wish you all a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and look forward to the start of our new society!
