We are breeders of registered Katahdin Hair Sheep and our farm
produces superior genetic breeding stock for registered breeders and
replacement seed stock for commercial operations. We breed and
select for meat, large bones, fast growth rate, abundance of muscle,
milk and hair coat. Our program focuses on continuing genetic
improvement of the Katahdin sheep breed. Our entire flock is now
Certified Scrapie Free.
Our breeding sires include 3 out
cross ram blood lines. They are white with A or AA coats, polled,
and Codon 171 genotype RR. Breeding ewes are also white with A or AA
Our ewes "pasture lamb" from
January through early March. We record birth weights, 60-day and
120-day weights. Lambs are weaned at 60 days, and are available for
purchase after four months of age, usually beginning in May. All
vaccinations are given and health records are available.
