We have been steadily increasing our lamb herd and developing our grazing program for these amazing ruminants. Here in the hot and humid climate of north Mississippi, we raise Katahdin and Dorper lambs, which are called “hair sheep” and fare better here than their wool producing counterparts. We rotationally graze them in a series of pasture paddocks, and give the growing lambs free choice access to a whole kernal, non-GMO corn ration to finish them.
Like our cattle and hogs, our lambs are never confined in feedlots, and always have access to fresh pasture, hay, sunshine, and shade. A big thanks to Rodney Akers with Sand Spur farm in Pontotoc Ms for providing us with top quality lambs and advice on our growing program.
