KMC 18127

Offered for sale as a registered, proven yearling ram $550

Meaty, red ram with flashy white markings. Really strong growth and milk EBVs, moderate on prolificacy; this guy will make an awesome terminal sire or can throw replacement ewes that are  less likely to triplet, for those who prefer fewer litters in their lamb crop. I used this ram last fall for breeding and he had very nice lambs. I may still keep him for another season or two, but I shipped in two new rams from Missouri, so don’t really need this guy, thus am offering him up for sale. He weaves together a nice combo of out-of-state genetics (Birch Cove Farm in Missouri, Thistle Grove Farm in Iowa) and local stock, and there is a Dorper way back in the pedigree, for good measure!

Offered for sale as a registered ram $500

Big, meaty 2-year-old red ram. Calm and easy handling, moves away from people and moves well for dogs. I kept him as a backup breeder, but ended up not needing to use him; and this year I brought in two new rams from Missouri, so this guy is available to go to a new home. He has very balanced EBVs across the board, good growth, good prolificacy and very strong milk. He will throw very nice grower lambs as well as replacement ewes. His pedigree is an outcross of two out-of-state sheep from very strong NSIP, grass-fed flocks. He has one very small scur. Refresh your genetics with new blood from Iowa (Thistle Grove Farm, John Bare) and Missouri (Birch Cove Farm, David Coplen).

Offered for sale as a registered  ewe $475 with registered ewelamb at side

Smaller-framed, fawn baldfaced ewe. Good growth and milk, but low on prolificacy, so she will likely hover between twinning and singles most years. Her sire has a high NLB (15%), but her dam is lower (-2.9%) and since this ewe singled as a 2-year-old, her score reflects that. But she did lamb as a yearling, which not all my yearlings do, so that is a plus for her prolificacy as well.

She has, at side, a chocolate ewelamb sired by KMC7045 (who has very high NLB at 21.9%). These pedigrees weave together not only old PNW genetics, but a lot of out-of-state genetics from Missouri, Ohio, and Iowa; and the ewelamb has now-retired Misty River Farm in her sire’s background. It’s a great combo for a starter flock, to begin with such diversity. This ewe should be an easy lamber going forward and has lots of years of productivity ahead of her.

Photo taken May 2019.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop birth data. Will go with her registered ewelamb at side as a pair if picked up before July 7th. After that, can go solo when I wean her lamb. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 1/1.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $300

Striking red roan ewe, with positive growth and milk, and moderate prolificacy. She will likely be a consistent twinner that steers clear of triplets most of the time. Diverse pedigree including Missouri (Birch Cove Farm) genetics as well as some old-stock WA Katahdins and KRK.

Offered for sale as a registered ewelamb $420 with wether lamb at side

Classic white ewe with really good growth and very high prolificacy, this girl likely has triplets in her future. Her milk score is a little low, but her mother can successfully raise triplets, so I think this girl will be able to  as well. She is the only yearling here who had twins this year, so that is a strong data point for prolificacy already. She lambed freely on pasture and was a very attentive mother to her teeny twins. But unfortunately she laid on one when it was a day old. 🙁 This doesn’t happen very often because Kat lambs are usually vigorous enough to wiggle out, but twins from a yearling are indeed very tiny, so I don’t think this lamb was strong enough. So, this girl is raising her remaining ram lamb as a single.

Photo taken May 2019.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop birth data. This girl can go with her (wethered) ram lamb at side as a pair before July 7th. After that she can go solo once I wean her lamb.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $420 with wether lamb at side

Flashy red pinto spotted ewe, great shedder. Positive EBVs and a little low on milk; this girl should be an easy keeper that doesn’t stray into triplets very often. Diverse pedigree, her maternal grandmother is from Birch Cove Farm in Missouri, and she’s got a good mix of old-stock WA genetics; plus a Dorper cross three generations back on the maternal side.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, $300

This is a gorgeous, feminine ewe with very striking red pinto markings. She has good growth metrics, modest on prolificacy and a little low on milk. But, she comes from very old genetics- KRK33 was a ewe who lived 13 years and had 30 lambs in her lifetime, so prolificacy and milk is there on the maternal side, but 33’s data wasn’t captured in NSIP. This pedigree brings in some genetics from Iowa (Thistle Grove Farm) and Missouri (Birch Cove Farm).
