About Valais Blacknose SheepAbout Valais Blacknose Sheep



Valais Blacknose sheep come from the Valais region of southern Switzerland. They are a rare dual-purpose breed that is raised both for meat and for wool. Both rams and ewes are horned and they have a very distinct black-hole face - their faces, eyes, and noses are all black surrounded by long white wool.

Valais Blacknose sheep are well adapted life in the high mountains and they graze even on the steepest, stoniest slopes.

Other than Switzerland Valais Blacknose sheep can be found in Germany and recently 10 ewes and one ram where imported into Scotland by a rancher named Raymond Irvine.


Valais Blacknose Sheep Associations


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.
