Cambridge Sheep

Post by Shepherd » Mon Jan 01, 2018 10:38 pm

The Cambridge is a dark-faced, medium-sized sheep that was founded in 1964 at Cambridge University, as a prolific breeder.

The foundation stock contained prolific ewes selected from within native breeds.

The Cambridge is valued for crossing with other breeds to produce better quality ewes.

The breed has a very high productivity, most of which can be attributed to the presence of a single gene.

Distribution is in the United Kingdom and Europe.
