About Coopworth SheepAbout Coopworth Sheep

Coopworth are medium sized, dual-purpose, white faced sheep with an alert but quiet disposition. They were developed in New Zealand in the 1960s from Border Leicester and Romney crosses, and was first imported into the United States during the late 1970s. Today they are one of the most dominant breeds in New Zealand.

They are a highly productive sheep, and are popular for easy care lambing, prolificacy, and good mothering ability. Coopworth wool is relatively coarse and long and is popular with hand spinners.
