About Criollo SheepAbout Criollo Sheep



Criollo sheep are the highlands of Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Bolivia, Peru, Venezuela and Guatemala over hundreds of years. They are known by some other names such as Venezuelan, Uruguayan, Tarhumara, Colombian, Lucero, Creole, Chilludo, and Pamba. Spanish settlers brought the Churra with them in the mid sixteenth Century. The Churra is believed to be the ancestor of the modern day Criollo sheep. Today, they are raised mainly for meat production.  

They are relatively small sheep and they are generally black and also white or pied. They have a coarse fleece of carpet-type wool. The rams on average weight around 32.8 kg at maturity. And average live body weight of the mature ewes is about 26.1 kg.
