Found in mainland North America, the St. Croix is typically white and polled, though local variants can have different coloration or markings. It is a relatively small sheep and known for its high fertility and parasite resistance. The St. Croix landrace continues to be raised in the US Virgin Islands. St. Croix lamb meat is tender, with a sweet aroma and a delicate taste. The sheep is listed as "threatened" on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy's Conservation Priority List.
