The East Friesian sheep breed is native to Germany’s Northern area and to Friesland province in the Netherlands. They are the highest milk producing breed of sheep, producing roughly 300-600 liters of milk, over a 200- to 300-day lactation. That's including the milk suckled by the lambs.
East Friesians are also used for crossing breed for other milking sheep. They can raise both the average number of lambs born and milk production, when crossed with other milk sheep breeds.
The East Friesians have pink noses and their head and legs don’t have wool. Their heads are naturally hornless. The most distinctive feature of an East Friesian is its "rat-tail" because it is thin and free of wool. Elsewhere on their bodies they have white wool which is approximately 35-37 microns, with a staple length of 120–160 millimeters and their fleece ranges from 8.8–11.0 lbs.
