A Katahdin Ram
The Katahdin breed is a woolless, easy care sheep
that has a single purpose: MEAT. This purpose is
met efficiently and economically.
Katahdins are heavy-muscled, medium-sized sheep
that are completely free of permanent wooly fibers
so no shearing is required.
Katahdins naturally produce a lean carcass and
meat flavor is excellent, even as an adult. Like other
hair sheep, long season breeding is another advantage
that they possess and difficult lambing is unusual.
Ewes are excellent mothers with very good milking
ability. All of our lambs are pasture born and raised.
Our sheep are selected for easy care on subtropical,
intensively grazed pastures. The lambs are not creep
fed, but reach market weight soon after weaning. Our
flock of purebred Katahdins is not registered.
In 2006 we used a registered Dorper ram on all of our
yearling Katahdin ewes producing some lovely lambs
with many of the advantages of the Dorper. It is an
excellent hybrid cross.
