Katahdin, Cormo, Coopworth, & Dorset x Ile de France sheep
Current Stud Rams
Katahdin - enrolled in NSIP
The Katahdins were originally purchased to produce registered replacement stock and to serve as working stock for the training of young Border Collies. They proved to be prolific, highly productive, efficient, and excellent mothers, earning their place as a foundation enterprise on the farm. The breed is ideally suited as the basis for commercial flocks and flocks where no shearing is desired.
A small flock of Cormo ewes produce a fine, soft yarn suitable for 'next to the skin' wear.
A limited number of purebred Coopworth ewes are kept for the production of raw fleeces, roving, and bright, silky yarn.
Dorset x Ile de France
Polled Dorset x Ile de France ewes produce 25% Ile de France lambs which are excellent for commercial market lamb production.
