About St. Croix SheepAbout St. Croix Sheep



St. Croix is a hair sheep that originated in the Virgin Islands, where it is called the Virgin Island White. They are believed to have descended from hair sheep of West Africa, but some think they are a cross of Wiltshire Horn and native Criollo sheep. Most St. Croix sheep are white with some solid tan, brown, black, or white with brown or black spots.

Both sexes are polled, and rams have a large throat ruff. Exceptional parasite resistance compared to British sheep breeds has been documented in studies at several universities. The St. Croix is classified as a "rare" breed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.

International Dairy Goat Registry - International Fiber Breed Registry
www.idgr-ifbr.com
I.D.G.R. was established in 1980 for the purpose of providing a low cost registration and record-keeping service for owners of ALL breeds of goats and sheep. With four herdbooks for Purebreds, Americans, Grades, and Experimentals in every breed, there is a ‘home’ in IDGR for every goat and sheep. In October 2014 we took on the name "International Dairy Goat Registry-International Fiber Breed Registry" to allow our name to better reflect our mission.
