Targhee is a dual-purpose sheep with good meat type and a heavy fleece of high quality wool. They are hardy, and are especially suited to the ranges of the West where they were developed. Targhee ewes have good mothering and milking ability. Mature Targhee ewes raise a high percentage of twins under range conditions. Targhee ewes excel in pounds of lamb weaned per ewe bred. Lambs at weaning should be thick and in good body condition. Today’s Targhee sheep are hearty enough to withstand the elements while producing high quality lamb and wool for market.

INSTRUCTIONS: If you put cursor over a pin and click the breeders information will appear. On some of the breeders maps the pins are so close together on the zoomed out map that you can not see all the pins marking individual breeders. For those situations I recommend clicking on the blue words below the map to see a larger version that also shows the list of breeders in alphabetical order along the side.
