About Grey Troender SheepAbout Grey Troender Sheep



Grey Troender are medium-sized sheep from Trondelag region of Norway. They were developed, in the late 19th century, from the crossbreeding of native landrace sheep with the now extinct Tautra sheep.

They are most commonly found in shades of grey with distinctive white markings under their eyes. Although, brown, black, and white woolled animals are also occasionally seen. Their wool is uniform with a minimum fiber diameter of 32.3 mm, and around 2-3 kg average weight. Both rams and ewes are usually polled and they have half-long or variable length tails. They weigh from 70 to 80 kg.

Today, they are a very rare breed with approximately 50 individual animals available (nearly all residing within Norway); however, their total population is increasing gradually. The Committee on Farm Animal Genetic Resources established a project for collecting and freezing semen from Grey Troender rams in an effort to revive the breed in 1998.
