About Assaf SheepAbout Assaf Sheep



Assaf sheep are thernresult of crossbreeding between Awassi and East Friesian Milk sheep. In 1955,rnresearchers of the Israeli Agricultural Research Organization (A.R.O) startedrnthis project aiming to improve the fecundity of the Awassi sheep. A combinationrnof 3/8 East Friesian and 5/8 Awassi blood emerged as the best cross.

rnrnMost dairy sheeprnbreeders in Israel have adopted the Assaf, which is considered not only a toprnquality dairy sheep and excellent mutton producer, but is also well-adapted tornsemi-extensive to extensive production systems. Under Israeli conditions, inrnwhich ewes have approximately 3 lambings in 2 years, the annual milk yield isrn450 liters. The demand for Assaf sheep is increasing every year. They have beenrnexported to Spain, Portugal, Chile and Peru.
