The Irish Vendéen Sheep Society


The Ram of Choice for Commercial Lamb Production Enterprises

The Vendéen breed is mainly a terminal breed, so most emphasis should be put on the production trait.

They originated from the West Coast of France where they experience hot, dry summers and cold, wet winters, which leave them adaptable to all types of farming systems- be it intensive or extensive.

The Sheep themselves are very distinguishable with their bulky looks, tight skins, and good wool cover including the crown of their heads.
