Beltex Sheep

Post by Shepherd » Mon Jan 01, 2018 10:11 pm

The Beltex breed is included here because the breed's has double-muscled highquarters and fine bones, ensuring maximum meat percentage in lambs.

The Beltex came from Belgium and was introduced to Britain from Belgium in 1989.

The Beltex is primarily used as a terminal sire. Beltex-sired lambs are thrifty.

Finished lambs have well-fleshed legs, good eye muscle and a long loin.

Distribution is in Europe, UK and North America.
