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. By pasturing sheep with our cattle, we not only get the benefit of healthier pastures, but we also get some wonderful tasting lamb meat! As with our other animals, our sheep our 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.
