Welcome to Katahdin Hair Sheep International

Why Choose Katahdin Sheep

Katahdin Sheep work very well in a variety of production situations as a low-maintenance, easy care sheep. Katahdins have generated a great deal of interest from all parts of North America. We have members from Mexico to Northern Canada and have exported to Ecuador, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, United Kingdom, Chile, and Central America. Katahdin hair sheep provide a practical option to producers who are primarily interested in raising a meat animal, with great lamb vigor, mothering ability and do not want to shear or are no longer able to find shearers.

In a recent presentation, Dr Dave Notter of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (a top Animal Science Geneticist in the USA), said –  the backbone of America’s future commercial flock will be a ewe with parasite resistance, low maintenance costs, high fertility/prolificacy, good mothering ability, and one that produces either no wool at all or the highest quality wool.
