Information on the St. Croix hair sheep is now on the Faust BioAg web
The St. Croix is a prolific ³hairsheep² which doesn¹t produce wool which
makes it ideal for the Tropics although it does well in the north. The
St. Croix can have 3 lamb crops every 2 years and normally has twins.
They bred back while still nurseing a two month old lamb. This is a
fine meat breed and hardy as well as parisite (worms) resistant as
adults. The St. Croix is the perfect small meat animal for the south and
for controlling weeds in orchards. They are docile and easy to handle
and pure white. I have breeding stock for export.
