The Katahdin breed originated in Maine from crosses of the St. Croix,
Suffolk and Wiltshire Horn. They are a woolless, easy-care sheep capable of
high performance in a variety of management systems. Katahdins possess
excellent mothering abilities, are good milkers, prolific and have an extended
breeding season. Their hair coat can be any color or color pattern and they
possess unusual tolerance to heat and humidity as well as cold environments.
Katahdins are the largest of the hair breeds and naturally produce a lean and
well-muscled carcass with excellent meat flavor.
