*Welcome to the 2023 Karakul Flock Finder*
This is the same form used for the 2017 census, which closed March 31, 2018. Please check out the results & report under tab Census Results.
Anyone who owns Karakul sheep in North America is welcome! American and Canadian Karakuls will be counted separately. Your participation is voluntary and all information from this survey will remain completely private. No information from individual farms will be made public.
We will share count information only with the Livestock Conservancy for their Conservation Priority List. Visit livestockconservancy.org
Locating historical Karakul bloodlines is important for the breed in order to expand the current North American gene pool. We would very much appreciate your sharing with us a bit about your farm and flock.
You may fill out as much or as little of the Flock Finder as you would like. Only 3 fields are required–
- Counts of pure Karakul sheep
- Address (city, state) so we know where the Karakuls are
- If you would like to be listed on our Breeders page (Free!)
We are specifically looking for established Breeders of Karakul sheep, flocks that have been managed for at least three years, preferably longer. New breeders are welcome to use the form to let us know the directions and goals that have been set for your Karakuls. We are always willing to help new breeders get started.
To register sheep from Isolated flocks the History is needed. This Flock Finder form only needs to be filled out once. However, genetic additions to Isolated flocks will need their History updated with gender, source, and year in the Existing Alliance Flock field below. Thanks!
WE LOVE PHOTOS! If you would like to send pictures of your flock, email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or see below

with permission to post online if OK
After looking over this online Flock Finder page, if you think a paper form would work better for you, please click on the paper form link, print, fill out, and mail; you may call, text or email to request I mail one to you.
Thank you! Deborah, Registrar
