Cornell Sheep Farm


The mission of the Cornell Teaching & Research Center Sheep Farm is to evaluate economical methods of managing a highly productive flock to provide sheep for research, teaching, and extension programs. Knowledge gained by testing feeding, breeding, housing, and health management options for the flock is transmitted to farmers through the extension and teaching parts of the Cornell Sheep Program.


The farm is located about 5 miles south of Dryden, NY on Slaterville Road off of Route 38 near Harford (click for map). Approximate address is 440 Slaterville Rd, Dryden, NY 13053. It is the home of 250 Dorset, 75 Finnsheep, 325 Finn x Dorset, and 100 1/4 East Friesian X 3/4 Dorset ewes. Click here for an aerial photogrpah.
