Introduction

More than a few people would use words like 'dumb' and 'stupid' to describe sheep. Not me. I use words like 'trusting', 'habitual' and 'profitable'.

I use these words because they are what I know sheep to be. As someone who spent over twenty years as a shepherd to several hundred head of sheep, I can say in no uncertain terms that I know the potential for sheep when it comes to making your farm a profitable business.

The degree of profitability, however, depends upon the quality of your sheep. And when it comes to quality, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better breed of sheep than the Katahdin.

Katahdin are hair sheep; meaning they don't have wool. So yes, if your intentions for raising sheep are for spinning, you will need to choose a wool breed known for the quality of their wool. But if it's meat production you are after, look no further than the Katahdin.
