Katahdin / White Dorper Crosses:

Having become disenchanted with a goats poor survivability we have chosen to replace them with Katahdin sheep on our range grazing alongside the cattle. Katahdins demonstrate significant tolerance of internal and external parasites and if managed carefully require only minimal parasite treatment. Their short, hair coat allows them to tolerate the heat and humidity of the southeast. In cold weather, they grow a thick winter coat, which then sheds during warm seasons. Katahdin ewes cross well with other breeds to produce superior market lambs. In our program we are crossing with White Dorper rams to produce marketable lambs.

The Dorper is the fastest growing, heaviest-muscled hair sheep breed in the U.S. Dorpers do not shed as well as other hair sheep, but their carcasses are superior to any other breed of hair sheep. Due to their superior conformation and shedding characteristics, they have become one of the most popular breeds of sheep in the U.S.

We are located on a family farm in southeast Alabama. We pasture graze Katahdin and Dorper influenced hair sheep to market ram lambs here on the farm. At the moment we have approximately 60 breeding age ewes.
