Cormo Sheep Information

Cormo is a new scientific sheep breed. I.K. Downie of Tasmania was the driving force behind the creation of the Cormo breed. The Cormo Breed is a one-time crossing of Tasmanian stud Corriedale rams on 1200 selected superfine Saxon Merino ewes. This was the beginning of the development of the Cormo breed. The result — 1/4 Lincoln, 1/4 Australian Merino, and 1/2 Superfine Saxon Merino – is fast becoming one of the best wool producing breeds in the sheep industry today.
