Romney Marsh
Originally, at the majority of Argentine estancias cattle shared paddocks with sheep; fortunately, this is still currently the case at Buena Esperanza.

The breed which was originally established, and which continues today, is the Romney Marsh.

In search of the characteristics which highlight the breed, a lot of untiring work was carried out to develop a meat producing and fertile animal. and Emphasis was placed on transmittable traits for weight, length, fineness, colour, texture and style of the fleece, as also well as an open face to save manual labour removing the face wool.

The Romney Marsh Flock is range bred and receives no extra rations. This assures an animal of very good performance, even in the northern areas of our country and with minimum work requirements in caring for the flock. Shearing is carried out once a year in the month of October.

Sales take place – as has been the case for over 30 years – at an annual auction held at the Chajari Rural Society in the month of January.
