Abstract

THE Corriedale sheep is a breed which has achieved widespread popularity throughout the world as a dual-purpose animal.

It was evolved by New Zealand breeders who—not fully satisfied with the performance of either the Merino or the British longwool sheep under their conditions—sought an animal which would combine the superlative wool-producing properties, and outstanding foraging ability of the Merino with the better meat production and better mothering qualities of the British sheep.
