Breeding Stock

Purebred Saxon Merino Sheep 

Catskill Merino sells purebred (12th generation as of 2013-14) Saxon Merino sheep.

In 1990 we imported 5 Saxon Merino rams and semen from 11 other purebred merino rams from Australia. (The Australians by law do not export merino ewes.)

Catskill Merino Saxon sheep have an average fiber diameter of 16 to 18 microns; their wool is bright-white, tightly crimped, a 3-4" staple length, dense and uniform on a smooth body.
