We would like to welcome you to our third annual online Katahdin sale. These rams are pictured on our website at www.prairielanefarm.net and on our Facebook page at Prairie Lane Farms Katahdin Sheep. We have strived to breed Katahdins that will work for purebred, NSIP, or commercial production and still be competitive in the show ring. We have selected for rate of gain, mothering ability, and we have developed ewes that will lamb naturally out of season with no hormones. We are offering progeny from the following rams:
SHU 3800 “Stetson” This ram was Reserve Champion at the 2019 NAILE. We have retained several Stetson daughters in our flock and they have produced well. They weaned a 200% lamb crop with an adjusted 60 day average of 72.5 pounds and they are an impressive set of lambs Both of our fall rams have been sired by Stetson All of our fall lambs are natural born fall lambs and we have been selecting for fall lambing genetics in our flock.

CAG 51886 “Hercules” Hercules was 1st place fall ram lamb at the 2019 NAILE. He is sired by Velocity and we used Hercules for spring and fall lambs. He has a PWWT of 5.2 (top 5% for WWT and PWWT) and has sired our fastest gaining lambs. Hercules lambs show tremendous growth and correctness.
