Mainely Lambs

While perhaps the state's most tired pun, 'Mainely' applies to our lambs in that they are Katahdins, a breed developed in Maine and named for the highest mountain. I will of course avoid all puns describing Katahdins as the pinnacle of breeding success, or the highest point on Maine's ovine landscape. The meat breed requires no shearing and is known for its natural resistance to parasites. We brought in 6 lambs this year, and hope to breed a few of the females this fall, with the rest for meat. They have the sweetest disposition of any of our animals, and bah with eagerness at their daily move to new pasture.
