Conclusions

Meat from traditional breeds is gaining in popularity – fits

with modern demands for low intensity of production / high welfare standards / high taste

Some evidence that meat quality is ‘different’. No deleterious genes linked to selection for leanness. Flavour

differences linked to fat composition in sheep.

Traditional breeds perform well in unimproved grazing situations

Craft – style meat processing may be an important part of higher quality. Opportunities for local food chains and

Niche markets
