Rambouillet Sheep


Other name(s):
 Rambouillet Merino; French Merino

Scientific name: Ovis aries

Country / Place of origin: Spain

History: The Rambouillet is a direct descendant of the Spanish Merino Sheep. A flock of Spanish Merinos were given to the French government by the King of Spain in the late 1700s. These sheep were taken to Rambouillet near Paris where they are still raised. The Rambouillet breed was further developed in Germany and the United States, and extensively used to improve the quality of lamb production as well as fine wool. Rambouillets are found in Europe, North America, and Australia.
