Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $500 with wether lamb at side

Pretty dark chocolate brown ewe, slick shedder, good mama. Very positive growth and milk scores, moderate on prolifacy, this girl is likely to be a solid twinner most of her life. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1.

Photo taken June 2019 with her lamb.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop WWT data. This girl can go with her (to be castrated) grower ram lamb at side as a pair before the end of August. In Sept, she can go solo for $325 once I wean her lamb.

KMC 18155

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $275

A full-bodied white ewe, clean shedder, friendly. Her dam had mastitis on one side, trying to raise twins as a yearling, so this one ended up mostly being an orphan-rear (though not really a “bottle baby” because I teach them to drink off of a teat bucket right away). She is a product of an unplanned late breeding from a cleanup ram, and thus she is somewhat inbred, her sire is also her maternal grandsire. But the rest of her pedigree is outcrossed between KRK (Oregon), Birch Cove Farm (Missouri), and the now-retired Misty River Farm (Spokane); so I don’t expect her progeny to be too bottlenecked. She had positive growth and NLB scores, a little lower on milk and survival; but should generally be a good mother who consistently raises twins, with occasional triplets.

Photo taken June 2019.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop WWT data. This yearling ewe is ready to go to a new home and breed this fall to lamb as a two-year-old.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $625 with twin wether lambs at side

A large-framed buckskin ewe with positive growth and milk scores, a little lower on prolificacy. Lambing record starting as two year old: 1/1, 3/2. She lost one of her triplets this year three weeks in, necropsy revealed it had no milk in its stomach, so was likely not keeping up or competing with the siblings; so she may need to be monitored if she has triplets again. But her NLB score indicates triplets may not be common for her, and she is very maternal with her remaining twins.

Photo taken June 2019.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop WWT data. This ewe can go with her (to be castrated) grower ram lambs at side (pictured with her) before the end of August, or solo in September after they are weaned for $275.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $725 with grafted lambs at side

A feminine, classic white ewe with good growth, milk and prolificacy. She lost her ram lamb when he was only a couple of days old, she was doing a great job mothering him, but he faded some days after birth, despite treatment, and necropsy didn’t reveal a cause (best guess: white muscle disease). I grafted this pair of red twins onto her (their mother had subclinical mastitis and very little milk, so she went to a pet home). This ewe readily accepted them and has done a great job putting weight on them, as they were behind on growth initially. For a  yearling, raising big twins means she is a good milker. Her mother is from the now-retired Misty River line, and her paternal grandmother is from Birch Cove Farm in Missouri.

Photo taken June 2019.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop WWT data. This ewe can go with her adopted twins (pictured below) before the end of August (19010 is a to-be-castrated red roan ram lamb, and 19011 is a red registered ewelamb), or solo in September after they are weaned for $300.

Offered for sale as a registered ewe $625 with twin wether lambs at side

A really big-bodied, solid, reliable ewe with good growth EBVs, and low on prolificacy scores. Her lambing record starting as a 2-year-old: 1/1, 1/0, 2/2. So, she may waffle between twins and singles, but is likely to twin for several years since she’s in her most productive years. Last year she had a huge single ram lamb that was shoulder-locked in delivery overnight. I didn’t find it in time to pull it and save it, so that wasn’t really her fault, and that hurt her NLW score. But that year, I grafted two unrelated lambs onto her instead; she was a very receptive, and became a very maternal and protective mother of them. So, I think she’s a good ewe for a starter flock, stable and experienced.

Photo taken June 2019.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop WWT data run. She can go with her (to be castrated) grower ram lambs at side by the end of August, or solo after they are weaned early Sept for $275. One of her ram lambs is in the foreground of the photo, the other one is also white with some black spots.

KMC 7120

Offered for sale as a registered  ewe $525 with registered ewelamb at side

Smaller-framed, fawn baldfaced ewe. Good growth and milk (sometimes petite ewes make good 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 WWT data. Will go with her registered ewelamb at side as a pair if picked up before the end of August. After that, she can go solo when I wean her lamb for $275. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 1/1.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $500 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 with her lamb.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop WWT data. This girl can go with her (to be castrated) grower ram lamb at side as a pair before the end of August. In Sept, she can go solo for $300 once I wean her lamb.
