Our Katahdin Hair Sheep are a wonderful companion animal to graze alongside our cattle. Not only are they dead end hosts to parasites that could be carried by cattle, but they also do a great job of grazing forages that our cows might overlook. This brings about healthier pastures and wonderful tasting lamb meat! During the winter, they are fed hay and continue to reside outside with access to shelter. We do not feed our sheep grains, and they are free of antibiotics and hormones.
Katahdin sheep are a hardy sheep which produce great meat on pasture. Unlike wooled breeds, hair sheep do not need to be sheared since they will shed their winter coat when the weather warms. They are a recovering breed found here on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
