      I had long conversations with a friend who breeds California Reds and my BIL who is an ag-sci HS teacher in south Texas. I learned a LOT about sheep breeds and breeding. For example, sub tropical and tropical breeds retain their usual time for entering estrus, even when they’re in a northern climate.
