About East Merino SheepAbout East Merino Sheep

Source: Sheep 101


At the end of the 18th century, Merino blood was introduced into German sheep in the borders with France, and gradually these large meat Merinos were kept in large numbers in the Alsace Lorraine region of France. This strain became known as the Est a Laine, which translated means East and Wool.

East Merinos are attractive, strong, large-framed sheep with very-fine white wool. Their heads are long and white with long, drooping ears. They are naturally polled (no horns), unlike the original Merinos. Their necks have no folds or dewlap, which makes them easier to shear.
