Hampshire Sheep

Post by Shepherd » Tue Jan 02, 2018 4:37 am

The Hampshire sheep was developed from Old Hampshire, Southdown, Wiltshire Horn and Berkshire Knot crosses.

Hampshires are a large breed with black faces and legs. They have wool on the legs and head.

Their fast growth and large carcass make keep them in demand to sire crossbred market lambs.

Distribution is worldwide.
