DLS Sheep

DLS Sheep

 

The DLS was developed at Lennoxville, Quebec between 1965 and 1988. By using the Dorset, Leicester and Suffolk genetics, they produced a sheep that consistently breeds from June-August without external manipulation and has excellent meat characteristics. They adapt well to accelerated lambing programs.
