They have great mothering qualities. They have plenty of milk and few lambing problems’ often giving birth in the pasture to twins or more. .Katahdin are early maturing, medium framed, well muscled sheep with fast growing lambs. Katahdin are parasite resistant, mature Katahdin rarely require deworming. We raise our sheep in pastures and use rotational pasturing methods.
