St. Croix Hair Sheep Breeders


Join us, the St. Croix Hair Sheep Breeders, in promoting this rare heritage breed sheep.

St. Croix possess many traits that are highly desirable to the modern shepherd. Remarkable parasite resistance and excellent lamb production have been supported by university research. Hair sheep have been bred for meat, not wool, so St. Croix is an "easy care" breed that requires no shearing. The St. Croix Hair Sheep Handbook gives the history, breed characteristics, breed standards, uses, and general sheep management information.

To find out more about the St. Croix Hair Sheep Breeders, please contact any of the officers, Regional Directors, or a breeder in your area. You can also take a look at our Newsletter archive page.

If you wish to become a member of the St. Croix Hair Sheep Breeders, or need the forms to register your sheep, you may do so on this site. Interested in purchasing sheep? Buy St. Croix!
