The Coopworth is a dual-purpose breed developed in New Zealand for meat and wool. Coopworth fleece is prized by handspinners for its luster, silky texture, and beautiful crimp. They suit our farm well because they perform well on pasture.
Our flock is rotationally grazed all year round except for lambing time when they are near the barn under close observation. No grain is fed except during late pregnancy, when the nutritional demands of the growing lambs require more protein and energy than hay can provide.
