Sheep Unit

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


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