About Zulu SheepAbout Zulu Sheep



rnrnZulu sheep are native to South Africa and arernpredominantly raised by rural farmers in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. Theyrnare raised primarily for meat. They belong to the Nguni type of sheep.

rnrnZulu sheep are small, multicolored sheep thatrnare well suited to the harsh conditions and very tolerate to diseases. Inrnaddition they can walk long distances and have good foraging ability.

rnrnNevertheless, their existence isrnthreatened. Their place is being taken up by less adapted exotic breeds, eitherrnby replacement or crossbreeding. This change is being driven by the perception,rnheld by most farmers, that indigenous livestock show poorer performancerncompared to their exotic counterparts. This line of thinking has been receivingrnpolitical backing over the years in many African countries. Thus breedingrnprograms put in place in Africa have been geared towards improving thisrnpresumed low productive performance through crossbreeding.

rnrnTheir appearance varies; they are found in multicoloredrnshades of brown, black, and white wool or hair, and may be fat-tailed or not.rnZulu rams may be polled or horned, and a they have small "mousernears". rnrn
