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.
