The School of Food and Agriculture at the University of Maine maintains a flock of registered Icelandic sheep for use in parasite management research and for hands-on student learning.  Students in the University's EweMaine icelandics Club are responsible for care and feeding, routine care, lambing and marketing of our sheep.  Many of these students will go on to careers in veterinary medicine or animal science.  

 

We are starting to market both breeding stock and fiber.  All proceeds from sales is used to maintain the sheep and finance Sheep Club activities.

 

For a look at the day-to-day activities at our farm, we invite you to send a "Friend request" to the Club's Facebook page:
