The Polypay was developed at the experimental station in Dubois, Idaho starting in the late 1960's. Researchers drew from four breeds, Finnsheep, Rambouillet, Targhee, and Dorset, to produce a prolific sheep that would lamb out of season and produce a fast growing lamb with a high yielding carcass. The breed was fixed in 1975 and has since spread across the US, Canada and Mexico. Polypay lambs are good feeders and grow quickly and steadily to 36kg. They are docile, easily managed and adapt well to open pasture, rotational grazing or confinement systems.
