About Grey Troender SheepAbout Grey Troender Sheep



Grey Troender are medium-sized sheep from Trondelag regionrnof Norway. They were developed, in the late 19th century, fromrnthe crossbreeding of native landrace sheep with the now extinct Tautra sheep.

rnrnThey are most commonly found in shades of grey withrndistinctive white markings under their eyes. Although, brown, black, and whiternwoolled animals are also occasionally seen. Their wool is uniform with a minimumrnfiber diameter of 32.3 mm, and around 2-3 kg average weight. Both rams and ewesrnare usually polled and they have half-long or variable length tails. They weighrnfrom 70 to 80 kg.

Today, they are a very rare breed with approximately 50rnindividual animals available (nearly all residing within Norway); however,rntheir total population is increasing gradually. The Committee on Farm AnimalrnGenetic Resources established a project for collecting and freezing semen fromrnGrey Troender rams in an effort to revive the breed in 1998.
