KMC 23076

Offered for sale as a registerable Katahdin yearling ewe with ewelamb at side $575

Tall, framey chocolate ewe. Solid EBVs across the board, but not terribly high in NLB, for those who want to steer clear of triplets. Blend of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri) as well as local genetics in this pedigree.

EBVs from 2024 lamb crop birth data. Photo taken February 2024. She is NSIP Maternal and Stud Certified.  She has a flashy chocolate/black roan/spotted ewelamb at side. This was the result of an accidental breeding with a large mob of rams. I will DNA test the lamb and pass along the sire info it it’s identifiable, otherwise the lambs can be recorded as 50% and upgraded (I hope to know by late April, as the turnaround time for NSIP DNA is slow).

KMC 23130

Offered for sale as a registerable Katahdin yearling ewe with ewelamb at side $575

Classic white ewe, with solid EBVs across the board, but not terribly high in NLB, for those who want to steer clear of triplets. She is line bred on BC C 973, but the rest of her pedigree is diverse. Lots of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri) as well as local genetics in this pedigree.

EBVs from 2024 lamb crop birth data. Photo taken July 2023. She is NSIP Maternal and Stud Certified. She is all grown up and has a white ewelamb at side. These were the result of an accidental breeding with a large mob of rams. I will DNA test them and pass along the sire info it it’s identifiable, otherwise her lambs can be recorded as 50% and upgraded (I hope to know by late April, as the turnaround time for NSIP DNA is slow).

KMC 18114

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe, $425, exposed

Flashy mahogany and white pinto ewe.  Good growth, survival and milk, but low prolificacy, which is why I’m selling her, her scores are just a little low to stay on my keeper list. But she is a good mother and has many years of lambing left in her.  Pedigree is a blend of Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired), Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri),  Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa), KRK (Karen Kenagy, Oregon), plus my own genetics. Lambing record starting as a two year old: 1/0, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2. (Her yearling loss was a fence accident, no fault of her own.) She is NSIP Maternal Certified.

Photo taken September 2023. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop EPWWT data.  She is NSIP genotyped. She has been exposed/bred to GBR1008 (from Gibraltar Farm in New York) and is slated to lamb in April 2024.

KMC 18041

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe, $450- exposed

Flashy chocolate and white pinto ewe.  Her EBVs are modest across the board, which is why I’m selling her, her scores are just a little low to stay on my keeper list. But she is a good mother and has many years of lambing left in her.  Pedigree is a blend of Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri), Carl Ginapp (Iowa, now retired from sheep), and line bred on a ram tracing back to KRK (Karen Kenagy, Oregon), plus my own genetics. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 2/2, 1/1, 2/1, 2/1. (Prior year she had 1 stillborn, this year, I grafted one to another ewe in a moment of chaos management, though she may have been able to raise it fine had I had time to deal with whatever was going on that was separating them.)

Photo taken September 2023. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop EPWWT data.  She is NSIP genotyped. She has been exposed/bred to KRK18560 and scheduled to lamb early April 2024.

KMC 23147

Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin ram lamb, $475

Short coated buckskin ram. Strong EBVs across the board. Sire is one of the top EBV rams (IMO!) born at Karen Kenagy’s in 2022; and dam is a blend of my genetics and Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, MO). A note of caution: his birthweight score is on the high side, which is a common artifact with high growth metric rams. If you are a hands-off lambing operation or you feed  your ewes really well during pregnancy, you may want to consider a ram with a lower BWT value.

Photo taken August 2023. EBVs from 2023 EPWWT data. Ram is NSIP Maternal and Stud Certified. He is weaned and ready to start breeding right away!

KMC 23142

Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin ram lamb, $450

Red roan ram with a brockle face. It’s hard to see in the dusty summer pics, but this guy will have really striking markings once he sheds in his yearling year; roans are unusual and quite beautiful in summer when they are slick-coated. Solid EBVs across the board, lower on NLB for those who don’t prefer a lot of multi births.  Pedigree is heavy on Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri) plus a little Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired).

Photo taken August 2023. EBVs from 2023 EPWWT data. Ram is NSIP Maternal and Stud Certified. He is weaned and ready to start breeding right away!

KMC 23087

Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin ram lamb, $500

Beefy white ram. Very strong EBVs across the board, especially on the maternal side, this ram’s daughters will make excellent replacement ewes. Diverse pedigree with my own genetics plus Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri) and a USDA ram from the Booneville, AR research station that we got to borrow in the PNW for a year. A note of caution: his birthweight score is quite high, which is a common artifact with high growth metric rams. If you are a hands-off lambing operation or you feed  your ewes really well during pregnancy, you may want to consider a ram with a lower BWT value; or avoid breeding him to smaller framed ewelambs.
