About Han SheepAbout Han Sheep



Han are a type of Mongolian sheep. They were developed inrnthe semi-humid agricultural areas of China (Henan, Hebei, Shandong, Anhui andrnJiangsu Provinces). There are two types of Han which in 1982, were claimed asrntwo different breeds: Large-tail Han and Small-tail Han. The Large-tail Han arernpolled and are characterized by a long, broad, fat tail, with a thin twistedrnend turning upwards between two lobes, and broadest at the base. Maximum weightrnbeing 25 kg.rnrn 

rnrnSince the tail is too heavy for the sheep to move aroundrneasily during grazing, this type (or breed) is only adaptable to the plains.rnHan sheep are precocious and highly prolific, their fecundity levels being 163%rnfor the Large-tail Han and 229% for the Small-tail Han. Recent reports haverngiven even even higher figures of 192 percent for the Large-tail Han and 270rnpercent for the Small-tail.
