Sheep Wanted

Karakul Sheep Wanted

Anyone looking for Karakul sheep in North America is welcome to post a comment in the Contact Form at the bottom of this page. Requests will be posted with your name, state or province, email address, and phone number if requested. Your contact will be removed if you request, or if I know you have found/ purchased the Karakuls you were looking for.

If you have Karakul sheep, check this page often to see if you can fill requests for breeding stock or meat. Expand your current market or help a fellow Karakul shepherd in neighboring states market theirs. If you know a Karakul breeder who might have what the interested party is looking for, please point them to this page to connect with the requester.

ENCOURAGEMENT FOR CROSS-BORDER COLLABORATION: Every year more Canadians are looking for Karakul sheep. While import restrictions are stricter for ewes due to Scrapie laws, they are less so for rams. I would like to encourage US Karakul breeders, especially those in Border States with our northern neighbor, to SERIOUSLY consider meeting the export requirements for shipping rams to Canada.

NEW! PLEASE NOTE: In the past year the Alliance has found that several email addresses provided have not worked and we have no way to get in touch with you. There is now an option in the Contact Form for phone number. Please check the button if you would like it posted online. If not, I will keep your phone number in a private contacts spreadsheet and only provide to breeders who contact me and are interested in selling some Karakuls to you. ~ Thanks, Deborah

I am in the process of (slowly) rebuilding a Karakul flock after having had to disperse my original flock 8 years ago. I am looking for reasonably priced sheep relatively nearby. I am especially interested in ewes with short/elf ears. I had several in my original flock and would like to have those genetics again.  Julie Poudrier

Good Morning, Would you be able to tell me if anyone in the Kentucky area or near the Kentucky area sells the meat from Karakul sheep, especially the fat-tail? I have contacted Kathy at Check-mate farm and she gave me a name of Elizabeth Ann Brown in Mt. Sterling. I could not find a number for her so I contacted the Kentucky Arts Association out of Berea, KY and left a message for her. She sells rugs and yarns through the Arts. I contacted Jennifer McLagan, Omar Wahdan, Letty, The Fat Ewe Farm, and Willowdale Farm. I still could not make any progress in locating a breeder or butcher. Any Assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.  Melissa Gerges

Hi, I am very interested in starting a herd of Karakul sheep on my 120 acres located near Sacramento in Northern California. Would you know of any sources in the area that has any sheep for sale? I grew up with this type sheep back in Iran in the seventies and now I would like to market this product to the very large population of Persians in CA   Moe Montazeri
