Katahdin sheep are a breed of hair sheep developed in the United States, and named after Mt. Katahdin. Katahdin are hardy, adaptable, low maintenance sheep that produce superior lamb crops and lean, meaty carcasses. They do not produce a fleece and therefore do not require shearing. They are medium-sized and efficient, bred for utility and for production in a variety of management systems. Ewes have exceptional mothering ability and lamb easily; lambs are born vigorous and alert. The breed is ideal for pasture lambing and grass/forage-based management systems. In cold weather, they grow a very thick winter coat, which then sheds during warm seasons. Katahdins are also significantly tolerant of internal and external parasites and if managed carefully require only minimal parasite treatment. Live weight of a mature ewe ranges from 120 to 160 pounds; a mature ram will weigh 180 to 250 pounds.
