Tyrol Mountain Sheep are found in Tyrol of Austria and
Bolzano of Italy. They are a coarse wooled breed, belonging to the Lop-eared
Alpine group, which is kept for meat production.
Tyrol Mountain sheep are similar to Carinthian sheep but they
have better wool, a white face and longer ears. They are also occasionally pied
or black. Both sexes are polled. Tyrol Mountain sheep originated from the Bergamasca,
Steinschaf, and Spiegel variety of Carinthian sheep.
