Case Katahdins is located in Hartsburg, Missouri. We formerly sold purebred Katahdin, and Texel- Romney-and Suffolk (the old-fashioned kind) cross breeding stock that had been carefully selected for size, muscling, conformation, fertility, prolificacy, and hardiness. Our flock was raised in an intensive rotational grazing system, with ewes receiving grain only during winter lambing. Conditions are tough here in the Missouri River bottom; the summers are very hot and humid, the grass is watery, and the parasites are legion. Our sheep are well adapted to life below the Mason-Dixon line.

In 1991, we purchased a small flock of Katahdins: 5 ewes and 7 ewe lambs. We had previously given up on finding someone to shear a small flock of wooled sheep, and had investigated various breeds of hair sheep.The reason we became interested in Katahdins was due to their reputation for high parasite tolerance, mothering ability, good carcass conformation, and temperament. In addition to these attributes, we found that these sheep have the stamina to withstand the rigors of training our Border Collies.

Two of the ewes in the photograph were the centerpieces of our flock: In the center, "Petey", and on the right, "Nita", purchased from the Hambach flock dispersal. Both ewes weighed over 200 pounds and were part Suffolk. I had many of their daughters, granddaughters, and great granddaughters. Their sons and grandsons sired many high quality lambs.

We kept statistical measures of our lambs for seven years, noting birth number, birth weight, 30,60, 90, 120, 180, and 240 day weights, and mature weights of ewes and rams. Our flock is enrolled in the Federal Voluntary Scrapie Flock Certification Program, and was enrolled in the National Sheep Improvement Program. Carcasses are evaluated at slaughter for carcass yield, muscling, and fat cover.

WE HAVE DISPERSED OUR EWE FLOCK, DUE TO JOB REQUIREMENTS (we're going to graze meat lambs only). No breeding stock is available for sale. We sell pastured freezer lambs for $1.25 per pound live weight, available in the Boone/Cole County, MO area.
