Due to flock expansion, we will not be selling breeding-quality ewe lambs in 2020. Our 2020 ram lambs are also spoken for, except the best 3-4 who will be selected as breeding stock. Depending on how lambing goes, there may be some small, cute lambs that we would not choose for breeding but make great pets and lawnmowers
The Katahdin breed was developed in Maine and named after Mount Katahdin . They are a low-maintenance, easy care sheep requiring neither shearing nor tail docking. As our primary product is grass-fed lamb, we select for ewes that can raise twins to market weight on forage alone. Our sheep are purebred but not pedigreed.
Our flock is rotationally grazed all year round except for lambing time when they are near the barn under close observation. No grain is fed except during late pregnancy, when the nutritional demands of the growing lambs require more protein and energy than hay can provide.
Our ewes are scored on reproductive performance, maternal traits, and growth and vigor of her lambs. These results factor into our culling decisions, leaving the best ewes and their daughters to continually improve the flock. Our overall goal is a 100 lb lamb by November on a 100% forage diet.
Ewe or ram lambs picked up at weaning in June are $185 if buying less than 10. 10 or more is $175. Ram lambs kept till October to see how they grow are $275. Good choice if your goal is to breed but you don't want to pay for a proven ram.
Yearling ram with breeding experience and lambs on the ground $400. Occasionally we have older rams for sale when we have enough of his daughters in the flock.
Older ewes that have proven to be good mothers can be an excellent way to start your flock. Price starts at $250.
