Breeders of Commercial Katahdin Sheep
Shady Creek Katahdins has been raising commercial Katahdin sheep since 2003. We maintain a breeding flock of 25 ewes with lambing season occurring in February and March.
Katahdin sheep are a breed of hair sheep, they shed their coat rather than needing to be shorn like wool sheep. They also do not need to have their tails docked (cut off) because they do not have hygiene issues with manure collecting around the wool under the tail. Additionally, because this breed is slower to mature, the ram lambs do not need to be castrated.
We have a nice selection of market lambs and replacement ewe lambs. Please let us know if you are looking for a starter flock, replacement ewes, breeding ram or a few sheep for herding. We can assemble you groups of lambs/sheep to suit your needs.
