Katahdins are hair sheep. Unlike wool sheep, they shed their hair in the summer and never require sheering. Katahdin ewes are excellent mothers, usually having twins or triplets.
Our sheep are raised exclusively on pasture with high quality, free choice minerals and organic kelp. Throughout the winter we continue to rotate on reserved pastures while offering as little hay as possible. All of our lambs are pasture born and never see the inside of a barn.
Katahdins are low maintenance, hardy, and adaptable. They are highly resistant to parasites. We rotate our sheep daily or every other day to minimize parasites and build fertile soil.
We are currently the only farm in Oklahoma with Katahdins enrolled in the National Sheep Improvement Program (NSIP). By participating in the NSIP, we are able to offer our customers a wealth of information about the genetic predictability of everything from parasite resistance to mothering ability.
