Breeds of Livestock - Sheep Breeds Sheep: Ovis aries There are a number of different theories regarding the origins of domestic sheep. However, most sources agree that they originated from mouflon. There are two wild populations of mouflons still in existence: These two species are closely related with the only difference being the redder coloration and different horn configuration of the Asiatic mouflon.
Some sources even hypothesize that the European mouflon actually developed from the first domestic sheep in European being allowed to become feral and that all sheep are actually descendants of the Asiatic mouflon.
Sheep were among the first animals domesticated. An archeological site in Iran produced a statuette of a wooled sheep which suggests that selection for woolly sheep had begun to occur over years ago.
The common features of today's sheep were already appearing in Mesopotamian and Babylonian art and books by B. Another indication of the early domestication is the fact that they are the only species of livestock unable to return to a feral or wild state.
Selection for wool type, flocking instinct and other economically important traits over the centuries has resulted in more than distinct breeds of sheep occurring worldwide. Modern breeding schemes have also resulted in an increasing number of composite or synthetic breeds which are the result of a crossing of two or more established breeds.Career Services is responsible for the overall planning, development and implementation of the University's career services program for students and alumni.
