"Lambs by the Litter"
The Romanov sheep are from the Voga Valley, northwest of Moscow. Genetically unique to British and North American breeds of sheep, the Romanov is a "pure gene," not a "cross" of anything. They are HIGH PERFORMANCE sheep producing quads, quintuplets and even sextuplets; this is normal performance for a ROMANOV EWE. The North American record is seven live healthy lambs, the breed record is nine! Romanovs reach sexual maturity by the time they are 3 - 4 months old, they will breed any month of the year and combined with the aggressiveness of the newborns allow for a very high production ewe. The most practical application of Romanov genetics is in the development of the ewe flock: crossbreeding to get the high performance 1/2 ROMANOV EWE, the "market lamb machine," who looks like a regular sheep, is tough and has multiple lambs which live to get to market. They are the "secret" to surviving in the sheep business!
