If you are not looking to use the wool yourself, it might pay to look into self shedding hair sheep since it generally costs more to have a sheep sheared than the wool is worth. Also, your feed conversion will all go toward the meat and lamb fetus growth instead of making wool. Hair sheep are quite hardy and get along just fine in cold climates as long as they have some shelter from wet cold. Some common hair sheep breeds are the Katahdins, Dorpers, and Barbados. In our experience, the Barbados were a little more wild and take longer to put on the weight to get to market.
