The Pelibuey (also known as Cubano Rojo) is a breed of domestic sheep raised in the Caribbean, Mexico, and South America. The Pelibuey is a breed of hair sheep, meaning they do not generally grow wool. This adaptation makes them especially useful for tropical environments where heavily wooled sheep do not thrive. The breed is thought to originate in Africa, specifically from the West African Dwarf sheep. This breed is primarily raised for meat.
