The Finnsheep Breeders' Assocation provides record keeping for registrations and transfers of Finnsheep in the USA. It also serves as a communication link among its members and others interested in the breed.
Finnsheep are a multi-purpose breed. In their native Finland, where they are known as Finnish Landrace Sheep, they are raised for meat, wool and pelts. In the United States, their primary use has been in cross-breeding programs to increase the lambing percentage of commercial flocks. Recently, Finnsheep have been discovered by American handspinners for the color, luster and soft hand of their wool. An emerging market is the use of Finnsheep to produce lean meat favored by "ethnic" populations. Finnsheep are friendly, docile and easy keepers producing vigorous lambs that are up and nursing within minutes.
