Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $350, exposed
Classic white ewelamb, really nicely put together. Positive growth metrics and really stellar prolificacy, survival and milk. This lamb is out of my top-indexing ewe. I am keeping her sibling and don’t normally keep both in a set of twins, so she’s an opportunity to get some of my best genetics. Pedigree has Aspen Mountain (Aileen Scott, Montana) ewe and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, retired), tracking back to KRK and Just Plain Sheep (Jody Ouradnik). This ewe meets the criteria for NSIP Maternal Certified.
Photo taken Aug 2020. EBVs from 2020 lamb crop PWWT data. This ewe has been exposed to a ram starting 11/8. Rams are wearing marking harnesses, so I will know her breed date. Note that for me, ewelambs have about a 50/50 chance of conceiving in their yearling year, so no guarantees; but plan on feeding her well in case she is bred.
