Four of the many Ethiopian sheep breeds are described. These four breeds have evolved in different ecological zones, the Adal and the Somali Blackhead breeds in the lowland up to an altitude of 1100m, the Horro in the middle altitude from 1400 to 2000m, and the Menz in altitudes higher than 2500 m. Available estimates on their performance are reported.
