The Karakul Handbook–Selecting & Breeding Karakuls for Fur Improvement by Lowry Hagerman ©1951

Because Persian lamb pelts are the essence of Karakuls this is the book for every serious breeder. Lowry Hagerman was the most successful US shepherd to breed for the business of pelts. The deBremond-Hagerman family started with Karakuls in 1910, about 18 months after CC Young’s first importation. Starting with 100 Karalinc cross ewes and one superlative Karakul ram costing more than a Ford Model T, Hagerman was able to flood the market with thousands of matched pelts for the US Persian lamb fur industry.

Written in the late 1940’s, during the waning years of the industry, it was published just three years before the fur market totally collapsed. This book contains fascinating insight into Hagerman’s breeding and marketing practices that made him the premier breeder of his time, and for decades to come. The Hagerman family had Karakuls until 1996, a total of 86 years, longest to date for the breed.

The Alliance’s Handbooks were exposed to a lot of dust and flies, but they are not moldy. This collection had been stored in Ted Stultz’s barn loft, Fabius, NY, since 1979 when he sold the Empire State Karakul Fur Sheep Registry to Karen Koch. Ted had kept some books because he had been successful selling them to Animal Science students. After I contacted Ted in February 2019, he shipped 24 copies to Washington.

Ted Stultz’s Empire State Karakuls were descendants of Hagerman sheep.
