Corriedale Sheep

Corriedale Sheep

 

The Corriedale was developed in New Zealand as breeders attempted to improve the meat characteristics of the Merino by crossing with longwool breeds such as the Lincoln. The Corriedale was imported into Canada from New Zealand and for many years was a popular dual purpose breed. Its popularity has declined with the decline of the wool industry.

 

Le Corriedale a été développé en Nouvelle-Zélande quand les éleveurs ont essayé d'améliorer les caractéristiques bouchères du Mérino en le croisant avec des races à laine longue tel que le Lincoln. Le Corriedale a été importé au Canada de la Nouvelle- Zélande et a été, pendant plusieurs années, une race à double fin très populaire. Sa popularité a décliné avec celle de l'industrie de laine.
