About White Headed Marsh SheepAbout White Headed Marsh Sheep



White Headed Marsh Sheep originated in the north sea marshes of West Germany. Its beginnings can be traced back to the mid-1800s when North German Marsh sheep, the local milk sheep, were crossed with imported British longwool breeds, including the Cotswold.

In Denmark and North Germany the White Headed Marsh live outside in very wet and cold conditions. They are known for their hardiness, natural immunity, easy-care and excellent meat. They lamb at 180% in Denmark.

White Headed Marsh are similar-looking to Romneys or Coopworths, but are much larger with meaty hindquarters and wide deep loin and rack meat (the most valuable cuts).
