We raise St Croix sheep, Akbash Dogs/livestock guardian dogs, goats, pastured chickens, and mini cattle. Some of the major characteristics we look for are parasite resistance, a docile temperament, and the ability to thrive on pasture.
2013 brought many changes for us. We are participating in a University-led 3 year parasite study regarding our SC sheep so check out our FOR SALE tab for availability of ewes and rams.
This study is important because not only does it prove the parasite resistance of our stock, it will also shed light on the heritability of parasite resistance within the SC breed. It has been our unfortunate experience that not all SC sheep are created equal in regards to parasite resistance.
In the meantime, we will continue to focus on a hardy hair sheep that doesn't require worming or shearing. We will continue to select for superior milking and mothering abilities. We enjoy talking sheep and welcome any questions regarding sheep, husbandry, and breeding strategies. Don't hesitate to call or firstname.lastname@example.org
