cattle and sheep on Adak

Asked December 28, 2016, 10:13 PM EST

If one were desiring to start a community resource herd of cattle [beef and dairy] and flock of sheep on Adak, what breeds and sources of animals can you recommend? As background, I know Angus have a different feeding pattern strategy vs charolais, not that I'm interested in those breeds, but there must be particular breeds that would do well here.

It doesn't look like we have an expert who specializes in cattle and sheep in your area of Alaska. Here is a link to the University of Alaska's Extension service:

They may be able to find someone in your county or elsewhere who can help you if you contact them directly. Another option is to contact someone who already raises cattle or sheep in the area and see what breeds they keep.
