About Red Engadine SheepAbout Red Engadine Sheep



Red Engadine sheep originated in Switzerland in Lower Engadin and in the bordering Tirolian and Bavarian valleys. They originate from local varieties, from the Stone Sheep, and the Bergamask sheep. They are medium to large framed and are distinguished by their ram nose and their long, hanging ears.

They have a dark-brown body and a red-brown, medium to coarse wool which with increasing age becomes lighter. They are an easy-care sheep, well suited to extensive production situations. In the 1980's, the breed was almost extinct in Switzerland, but conservation efforts reversed the trend and in 1992, the Swiss Engadine Sheep Breeders Club was formed.
