Afrino Sheep Breeders' Society
Origin Of The Breed
The Afrino was the result of a breeding and evaluation project initiated at the carnarvon Experimental Station in the North Western Karoo following an identified need for a fertile white-woolled mutton sheep for extensive grazing areas.
Evaluations showed that a combination of 25% merino, 25% Ronderib Afrikaner and 50% Mutton Merino produced the best results and this formed the basis of the Afrino. The Afrino Breeders' Society of South Africa was established on 5 February 1980.
• Good fertility under sub-optimal environmental conditions
• Excellent mothering abilities
• High quality meat with an even fat distribution
• Lambs do not accumulate fat at an early age - animals can therefore be marketed at a later age and higher body weight
