Jacob Sheep


Jacob Sheep

Jacobs are an ideal breed for the novice shepherd or where time is at a premium. They are hardy sheep which require the minimum of housing. They make excellent mothers, seldom requiring assistance with lambing, and having plenty of milk to rear twins and triplets successfully.

Jacob breeders are happy to encourage newcomers to the breed and many will have surplus breeding stock for sale.


There are also regional and national sales organised by the Jacob Sheep Society where the entries are vetted for conformation with the breed standards and fitness for sale.
