About Gulf Coast Native SheepAbout Gulf Coast Native Sheep



Spanish sheep first arrived in Florida in the 1500's. Laterrnimportations of Spanish and other breeds of sheep mixed with the earlierrnpopulation, all evolving under the strong natural selection of the native rangernconditions of Florida and the other Gulf Coast states. Today a remnant of thisrnpopulation survives and is known as Gulf Coast sheep.

Gulf Coast sheep are best known for their resistance torninternal parasites. The Florida Agricultural Experiment Station in Gainesvillernhas a flock which has been maintained without the use of anthelmintics sincern1962. The Gulf Coast Native is classified as a "critical" breed byrnthe American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.


Gulf Coast Native Sheep Associations


International Dairy Goat Registry - International Fiber Breed Registry
www.idgr-ifbr.com
I.D.G.R. was established in 1980 for the purpose of providing a low cost registration and record-keeping service for owners of ALL breeds of goats and sheep. With four herdbooks for Purebreds, Americans, Grades, and Experimentals in every breed, there is a ‘home’ in IDGR for every goat and sheep. In October 2014 we took on the name "International Dairy Goat Registry-International Fiber Breed Registry" to allow our name to better reflect our mission.
