Ile de France Breeding Society of South Africa

Since the establishment of our first stud flock, the remarkable number of striking characteristics of the Ile de France have become familiar on the South African scene. The Ile de France is a large, smooth-bodied, polled mutton sheep. The breed is renowned for its unique carcass qualities, excellent growth rates, as well as high fertility and good mothering abilities. Its ability to breed out-of-season enables lambing to take place in autumn and for the lambing interval to be reduced to 7-8 months, allowing 3 lambings in 2 years.
