Rambouillet

 

a group of dual-purpose fine-wooled sheep breeds. The first breed of Rambouillet was developed in the mid-19th century in Rambouillet, France, by crossing various types of Merinos imported from Spain. Rambouillet sheep are larger, have a better conformation, mature earlier, and have thicker and longer wool than the parent breeds. The rams weigh 80 to 90 kg, and the ewes 50 to 60 kg. The wool is of 64th to 70th quality and has a length of 6 to 7 cm. The rams yield a clip weighing 8 to 10 kg, and the ewes 5 to 7 kg. Rambouillet sheep have been exported to Austria, Australia, the United States, and South America. They were imported from the United States into the USSR, where they were used to develop the following breeds: Ascaniia, Altai, Caucasian fine-wooled, Stavropol’and Sal’sk.
