At Heart and Soul Farm NC, we believe that growing healthier Katahdin sheep starts with nurturing the soil. Our utilization of regenerative agriculture practices and rotational grazing is healthier for the sheep, the environment, and consumers. Monthly Fecal Egg Counts help us to select for parasite resistance in sheep and reduce the need for chemical deworming. Bio Security tested Flock.

Gestation in sheep varies from 142 to 152 days with the average being 147 days. Just like people, individual pregnancies can vary, gestation periods of 138 to 159 days are not unheard of. Ewes carrying multiple lambs tend to have shorter gestations while male lambs (and heavy birth weight lambs) are usually carried for longer than female lambs. The form above calculates the lambing date based on a 147 day gestation period.
