Barbados Black Belly Sheep

Indigenous to Barbados, the Black Belly Sheep is considered a desirable breed. Well adapted to the tropics, they require little maintenance and are highly reproductive. They are exported to the US, Canada, Malaysia and the Caribbean.

As a food resource it is favoured for its delicate taste and low fat content.

Farming of Black Belly Sheep in Barbados is all on a small scale, farm plots are small and the sheep roam the countryside. They are even seen on town streets and along the roadways as they cross to greener grasses.
