With fewer than 3000 registered Barbados Blackbelly Sheep in the United States, Nine Mile Sheep Ranch is dedicated to continue the fight to bring this incredible breed to a prominent position in American agriculture.



The goal of Nine Mile Sheep Ranch is to further the Barbados Blackbelly Sheep Breed through genetic conservation and breed promotion.  We are members of the Barbados Blackbelly Sheep Association Intl, and the Barbados Blackbelly Sheep Consortium, and work collaboratively to ensure this breed has a strong future.
