Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, bred $475

A dark mahogany colored ewe with a white krunet, tail and long socks. This is a petite ewe, but she packs a punch in growth EBVs, so don’t let her small stature fool you! This is the “holy grail” of meat genetics: lambs that grow fast to butcher weight, but then slow down, so they don’t turn into huge adults that are expensive to feed and hard to handle. Due to our tough 2016 fall and winter and my ewelambs being on grass hay for most of it, I didn’t get many of them to breed. But this one did, and had a big, beautiful fawn ewelamb. This ewe is a very slick coated sheep that sheds early and clean. She will make a solid mother for many years to come!

This ewe has been exposed to a ram, due to lamb in April. Her lambs will be registerable. Keep in mind that mature ewes usually twin, so the floor of profit is $400 in butcher lambs, more if you sell some registered lambs or have triplets, so bred ewes have a great ROI. There are no guarantees on pregnancy status, since viability is mostly due to handling and feeding; but I rarely have one end up open. EBVs from this year’s PWWT lamb crop data. Photo taken early August.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, bred $450

This is a big-bodied white ewe with more of the East-coast phenotype. Her EBVs are modest, but she will make a good mother and a good starter ewe for a beginner flock that doesn’t want anything too complicated.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, bred $450

This is a pretty reddish-brown ewe with a white tail and hind socks. She has strong growth EBVs and a positive milk score, so should have growthy lambs; but her prolificacy should steer away from frequent triplets. Her sire is my “maternal sire” ram from Iowa, John Bare, DVM’s flock at Thistle Grove Farm.  There are some Montana genetics on her maternal side, so she brings some fresh blood to the PNW.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, bred $475

A balanced white ewe with good maternal scores and positive growth. We had a really tough fall and winter weather- and forage-wise, and not many of our ewelambs bred (they are run with the adult ewes on grass and fed grass hay, so are not treated specially). This was one of them, so she’s definitely got strong production and hardiness genes. Her maternal grandmother is from Aileen Scott’s Aspen Mountain farm in Montana, so she brings some fresh blood in from out of state. A lot of the animals in this pedigree are larger-frame, and this girl has some legs on her, so I think she’ll fill out to be a substantial ewe as she grows into a two year old.

A deep-bodied, chocolate ewe. She’s middle-of-the-road on EBVs, positive growth numbers, a little light on milk and survival, but strong for twinning genetics. I expect her to be a solid producer that live a long life.

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, bred $475

This is a very well-built white ewe with a classic Katahdin frame. She has good growth and great prolificacy scores, and is only slightly weak on milk. She will make a very solid producer and will likely have lots of twins and triplets over her lifetime.

Offered for sale as a commercial yearling ewe, bred $300

This is a good-sized buckskin ewe with a lot of white markings. She has a lot of color in her pedigree. Her EBVs are modest, partly because there isn’t a lot of data in the system for her dam’s side. I expect her to be a consistent twinner with no extreme traits. She retained enough wool this year to qualify as a “C” coat, so I’m selling her unregistered as a commercial ewe, at a discount. She’s shed enough to not require shearing, so it’s just an aesthetic issue. Sometimes sheep that shed this far as yearlings do shed fully in subsequent years. If she does, I could upgrade her to registered later for another $100.

This ewe has been exposed to a ram, due to lamb in April 2018. EBVs from this year’s lamb crop data. Photo taken early June.

This ewe has gorgeous, mahogany pinto coloration, which is unusual in females. She is a clean shedder, a good mother, moderate sized and calm and easy to handle. She is in her prime and has many years of productivity ahead of her. I’m selling her because her EBVs are pretty modest across the board, and I also have a lot of these genetics already.
