Katahdin Sheep Update

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Looks like we’ll be working on getting officially into “breeder” status, as we’ve partnered with a couple of other Katahdin sheep breeders who are working toward proving that worm resistance is hereditary and can be passed down from the sire.

Fall Colors are Happening Here

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

Ok, so it is the 4th of October, and we’ve had a dry and cool summer. We had our first frost last week on Friday - hard frost. It killed a lot of the soy-beans that hadn’t quite dried out yet. I think they were mature, and hope they’ll be ok, but […]
