The main sheep facility is located near the junction of Interstate 29 and 19th Avenue North. The original barn was constructed in the late 1940s. In addition to this facility, there are also sheep at the Animal Nutrition and Physiology Center that is located on campus. During the summer, some of our sheep are kept at the Ekre Grassland Preserve near Kindred, ND, as part of the range research program.


The NDSU sheep flock in Fargo includes purebred Hampshire, Columbia and Katahdin ewes, as well as commercial Whiteface ewes. NDSU also has sheep at the Hettinger Research Extension Center.
