The Corriedale breed originated in New Zealand from Lincoln and Leicester x Merino crosses and was imported into the United States in 1914.

Perendale

Posted: April 8, 2021

Breed Type: Dual Purpose
Country of Origin: New Zealand
Breed Association Website: perendale.org

Rare in the US, but common in NZ, where they originated, Perendales are perfect “starter sheep”. A dual-purpose breed, they provide both meat and abundant high-quality wool that appeals to handspinners. They share the better attributes of both parent breeds (Cheviots and Romney’s): easy lambers, excellent mothers, good parasite resistance, feet that rarely need trimming, and intelligent, sensible dispositions. They are “thrifty” sheep thriving on marginal forage.
