About Guirra SheepAbout Guirra Sheep



Guirra, also known as Sudat and Levant Red, sheep are fromrnSpain. They are found mainly in the Mediterranean coast of the Spanishrnprovinces of Alicante, Castellon de la Plana and Valencia. Their early history isrnunknown; but according to some authors, they were developed from crossings of Manchegarnwith thin-tailed North African sheep brought to the Mediterranean coast. In thernpast they were bred to produce meat, milk, and wool. But today, they are raisedrnprimarily for meat production.

rnrnGuirra sheep are small to medium sized, with red and whiterncoloration. The lambs have a reddish-brown fleece, but their wool lightens to arnred and cream color mixed fleece as they mature. Their ears are medium sizedrnwhich project horizontally from the top of their head. Their fleece covers theirrntrunk, neck, and part of their legs. They don't grow a dense wool and are consideredrnto be quite greasy. Their skin is usually dark.

rnrnGuirra sheep are considered an officially protected breedrnaccording to the Official Catalogue of Spanish Livestock Breeds.
