K Bar Livestock, LLC is proud to offer to the research community a unique alternative for those requiring the ovine species.  The Hair sheep is an exceptionally hardy breed that has a hair coat instead of wool.  It is predominately brown in color though white and black specimens are also found.

Although they generally mature a bit smaller than our Western Range sheep, the lambs tend to be quite similar in weight-for-age, and several of the ewes in our breeding program are greater than 100 pounds.  Thus, we have found that they are quite adequate in size for most protocols.

These sheep make ideal research models because they are highly intelligent and easily trained.  In addition, they handle stress much better than the wool breeds and are more resistant to disease.

They exhibit very strong mothering instincts and are ideal for timed pregnant protocols.  And, the joy of having no wool with which to deal, is an added benefit.

We believe the Hair sheep is well worth your consideration as a research model.
