Katahdin Sheep

AFSRC scientists are developing small ruminant finishing systems, including applications of medicinal plants for improving animal health. These Katahdin sheep are some of the animals used in the research. Results will enhance existing research-based management guidelines related to pastures, feed supplements, parasite control, and meat quality for meat goat producers.

More information about this research is available from Dr. Ken Turner
