Katahdin Sheep

 

Having had wool sheep as a youngster, I knew the problems with shearing, tail docking,
poor mothers, and parasites. I was delighted to discover hair sheep with none of these
problems.   I never forgot my love for sheep.  Researching the hair sheep breeds
I found the Kathadins to fit my needs the best. They are better suited for our more humid climates,
the largest, nonseasonal multiple births, quality meat, calm dispositions, completely shedding,
fast growth, and they come in all colors and patterns.  Like my ponies I like color and have
been selecting not only the best quality, but a variety of color and patterns. The Kathadins were
developed by selective breeding of several breeds and only the very best were used to
develop the breed.

Lambs when available.

Shorthorn and Angus Cattle

 

I began raising registered Shorthorn Cattle (Durham) in 1970 with the purchase of four cows
and a bull. Some of their decendants are still in the herd today and are some of my best
producers.

My love of the red, white, and roan began in my youth. I found them to not only be the
gentlest of breeds, but also great mothers with plenty of milk, grade 1% behind Black Angus in
USDA quality meat. The bulls tend to stay at home and not roam as much and, like my ponies and
sheep, are colorful.

In 2006, I began crossing the Shorthorn with the purchase of a registered Black Angus bull and
four cows. I was tired of registering cattle and the Angus Association had done a great job of
promoting Angus beef.

Today, the herd consists of two Angus bulls and thirty-five Shorthorn, Angus, and Shorthorn-
Angus crosses. It all began when I was 9 years old with a little cow called Red.
