About Lacaune SheepAbout Lacaune Sheep



Lacaune sheep are the most numerous sheep breed in France. They have been selected in France for increased milk production under a sophisticated selection program incorporating artificial insemination, milk recording, and progeny testing of sires for longer than any other dairy sheep breed in the world.  

Annual genetic improvement for milk yield in the French Lacaune is estimated at 2.4% or 5.7 kg (12.5 lbs). Lacaune ewes produce milk with higher total solids than the East Friesians, but in slightly less volume.The sheep of the Lacaune breed produce the milk which is responsible for the famous Roquefort cheese.


Lacaune Sheep Associations


International Dairy Goat Registry - International Fiber Breed Registry
www.idgr-ifbr.com
I.D.G.R. was established in 1980 for the purpose of providing a low cost registration and record-keeping service for owners of ALL breeds of goats and sheep. With four herdbooks for Purebreds, Americans, Grades, and Experimentals in every breed, there is a ‘home’ in IDGR for every goat and sheep. In October 2014 we took on the name "International Dairy Goat Registry-International Fiber Breed Registry" to allow our name to better reflect our mission.
