Featured Sheep of the Month
Our goal at Mesta Meadows is to produce the finest breeding stock for fine wool sheep. Our sheep are bred based on several goals - (1) Optimal wool quality, (2) Reproduction traits (mutliple, health lambs is the target), and (3) moderate size and good handling characteristics. We don't raise 'show lambs' where everything is about 'size'. The majority of our ewes and lambs are sold into the small farm holder and spinner/craft market. We do not keep or sell aggressive rams. The majority of our stock are registered, although we do sell a limited number of non-registered cross bred Rams and Ewes. Check our current listing by downloading the PDF below.
