We raise Barbados or Dorper hair sheep (or a cross between the two). the Barbados are know for their good taste and texture. They tend to be smaller than the popular Suffix and have less of a mutton-taste.
We raise them out on the pasture, and they usually rotate paddocks through the summer. We butcher in the fall and only have half/whole lambs available. Our average hanging weight 50-65lbs.
