About Finnsheep SheepAbout Finnsheep Sheep

The Finnsheep or Finnish Landrace originating in Finland in northern Europe. They are an active, hardy animal, adaptable to a wide range of conditions. It is most generally used for crossing to increase fertility in a standard flock. It also brings with it resistance to facial eczema.

They are characterized by high fertility (lambing rates frequently exceed 200 percent) and white, lustrous, bulky fleece. Other recognition features are its naturally short tail, its clear, wool-free face, and its pink nose.

Besides its good, fine-woolled fleece, they produce very lean meat.   Content and Photo Source: New Zealand Rare Breeds (www.rarebreeds.co.nz).
