Deveronvale Perfection - World's Most Expensive Sheep

Deveronvale Perfection was bred in Banffshire in England by a sheep farmer. It was purchased by another sheep farmer for $372,320, mainly for the purpose of further sheep breeding. This sale has made Deveronvale Perfection the most expensive sheep in the world.

The main reason why this 8 month-old sheep was valued so high is because of its strong physical attributes, and high-quality fleece for making wool. When bred, Deveronvale Perfection’s offspring is expected to recover the money spent on its purchase.

What do you think of this beautiful sheep? Nice soft woolen sweaters?
