Lefkimi Sheep is an old breed originating in Lefkimi in the south of the island of Corfu. In 2010 a private breeder initiated an island-wide search for the last animals with the Lefkimi phenotype. As a result a small nucleus of the breed was formed and selectively bred on the advice of the ‘Amalthia Network’.
Lefkimi is a large-sized, coarse-woolled, fat-tailed sheep of the Zackel type
Status classified as 'Critical' (2019).
