St. Augustine Hair Sheep

In Florida in 1991, Ron Taber began the development of a new breed of hair sheep based on the St. Croix and Dorper breeds. The new breed was named St. Augustine. The primary characteristic of the St. Augustine is productivity. St. Augustine ewes are early maturing, have multiple births, have excellent maternal ability, and can perform well in an accelerated lambing program.

Please see our Breed History & Description and Breed Standard pages for more information about St. Augustine sheep.
