The Campus Farm successfully debuted its Katahdin sheep flock at a national sale when two spring 2018 ewe lambs brought premium bids at the 14th Annual National Katahdin Sale in Fishersville, VA on July 21, 2018. The winning bid for one of the ewes was one of the top five bids for a February ewe lamb at the auction. Crystal Caldwell, the Campus Farm Manager, has managed the breeding and care of this flock since 2010 and has made significant improvements to its genetic quality. These lambs were two of the thirty Katahdin lambs born in this spring’s ANSC 235 Applied Small Ruminant Parturition (aka "Lamb Watch") class.
