Cameroon sheep

INTRODUCTION

Originally from West Africa it has now been exported to parts of Europe. It is a hair sheep which means instead of wool they have a hair coat. In the autumn they form an undercoat for extra protection against the bad weather. Cameroon Sheep are a flock animal and have a very developed flocking instinct which you can see in our ewes. Our flock of Cameroon Sheep sheep originally came from Flamingo Land in North Yorkshire. In the early spring you will often find the ewes with lambs at heel. Usually only a single lamb is born, but commercial sheep breeds will more commonly have twins or triplets. However ewes can only cope with twins as they only have two teats.
