Karras Farm Inc. Announces that the First Baby Awassi Sheep to Be Born in the United States has Arrived

(PRWEB) January 08, 2013

The Awassi Fat Tail dairy sheep is very hardy in nature, fully adapted to arid environments and considered to be one of the highest milk producing breeds in the Middle East. These sheep also have beautiful wool coats and are known for being resistant to many diseases and parasites that can affect other breeds. Karras Farm is now in year two of breeding the Awassi Fat Tail sheep in the United States with plans of rapidly expanding their Awassi sheep operation. Now that they have been able to import full blooded Awassi sheep, they are excited about the outlook for the future of this operation.

Karras Farm is a leader in the genetic breeding of dairy sheep and has become well known for producing some of the highest quality East Friesian sheep in the United States. This spring, Karras Farm will have the very first F1 Assaf sheep cross in the US. The Assaf sheep is a cross of Awassi sheep and East Friesian sheep with the F1 being a 50/50 first cross.

“This is exciting news for a quickly expanding sheep dairy industry in the United States. Awassi sheep genetics will enhance the growing demand for dairy sheep milk, cheese, meat and other byproducts." -Andy Karras, owner of Karras Farm.
