Sheep and Goat Center

Sheep and Goat Center; Department of Animal and Food Sciences

The sheep farm is one of the oldest structures on campus (built in 1930), and is located on approximately 80 acres just west of the campus. The farm consists of 3 breeds: Suffolk, Hampshire, and Dorset – all competitive on a national level. In 2003, OSU had the record-setting high sell of a Dorset at public auction, bringing $13,000. OSU sells their sheep privately and at auctions across the country, providing seedstock for commercial and seedstock producer. They also sell club lambs for show prospects.

The farm is in bermudagrass pasture, of which 36 acres is overseeded in the fall with small grains for winter pasture. The facilities at the sheep farm include the following: Main Sheep Barn (built in 1930); North Sheep Barn (previously a swine barn-used for sheep since 1980); and West Barn (built in 1967). Working facilities such as chutes, foot bath, cutting gates, and turning cradles are available at the North Sheep Barn. The purebred sheep flock is primarily used in teaching several animal science courses, as well as demonstrations and judging for 4-H, FFA, and field days.
