  Working Border Collies and Jacob Sheep  
 

Sheep

We raise our sheep on pasture all summer and hay all winter. We are breeding for lean meat, parasite resistance, easy mothering ability, fast growth.


We started with Jacob sheep, but we were not impressed with the Jacob size for the freezer. For the spring 2018 lambs we used a Katahdin ram on our ewes to see what we thought and the lambs had awesome growth. But I still didn't want to shear anymore. So we added 4 Dorper crossed ewes and one Katahdin ewe in the Feburary 2018 and 2 more Katahdin crossed ewes in the August 2018. So we ae switching out to Hair sheep crosses to get larger meat lambs for our sales.
