KMC 22004

Offered for sale as a purebred register-able Katahdin yearling ewe, $375

Graceful ewe with subtle red roan coloration; a very slick shedder. She has really strong EBVs across the board and is right on my cut list for keeping, but her milk score is a little modest for me. Sire is out of Birch Cove Genetics (David Coplen, Missouri). Dam is my genetics tracing back to Misty River farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired) and Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa).

Photo taken May 2023.  EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data run. This ewe is NSIP genotyped. She can go now with her white ram lamb for an extra fee, or in July by herself when he is weaned.

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe, $300

Red baldface ewe with white hind socks. Strong growth and prolificacy¬† EBVs but more modest on survival and milk. Pedigree has Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa), Misty Oaks Farm (Kathy Bielek, OH) and some local genetics. This mama is super maternal. This year she aborted twins a bit early and I was able to graft another lamb onto her easily, she loves having babies. But last year and this, despite a large udder, I’m feeling like she may not have that great of milk quantity and maybe should only raise a single or twins, at most, with readiness to supplement. So I’ve discounted her a bit because of that; she’d do best in a small homestead farm that feeds well and keeps close tabs on things. As you can see from the photo, she’s carrying great condition herself, she’s fat as a seal. Lambing record starting as a 2-year old: 2/2, 1/1, 4/2, 2/1.

Photo taken May 2023. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data.¬† She is NSIP genotyped. Her lamb is weaned and she’s ready to go to a new home today.

KMC 22114

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe, $375

Tall dark mahogany ewe. Really strong growth, milk and survival EBVs. Her NLB score is fairly low pedigree-wide, so she may steer away from triplets and single some of the time. Sire is one of the top NSIP rams in the country with lots of data and accuracy behind is EBVs, out of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri). Dam also traces back to Birch Cove, and my own/local genetics.

Photo taken May 2023. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data.¬† She is NSIP genotyped. She had a beautiful and very well fed ram lamb that died from clostridium (overeating disease) at three weeks of age. This is not her fault, it’s just a bummer consequence of breakthrough cases despite a good vaccination protocol. So she is unencumbered and ready to go to a new home today and be bred this fall.

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe, $300

White ewe with red dots/spotting. Modest on growth and milk but very strong prolificacy, this is a maternal ewe that comes from a very strong maternal pedigree. Her sire is a USDA ram we were lucky to borrow on the west coast in 2020. Her dam was a long-lived and very productive girl at my place. Those genetics trace back to some White Post Farm (East Coast, now retired), On the Lamb Farm (Sarah Jo Gahm, Arlington) and Bert Martineau, one of the early Katahdin breeders in the state, also now retired.

Photo taken May 2023. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data.¬† She is NSIP genotyped. She had twins this year, a ewe and a ram. The ram lamb was behind on 60 day growth as compared to his much bigger sib, so I early-weaned him to let him catch up. This may signal that this mama has some udder damage from subclinical mastitis, so I’m discounting her knowing that she may need to be watched in subsequent years. This isn’t normally a dealbreaker for me, as I can easily orphan rear lambs and sell them early, or supplement when needed. And often these ewes do just fine in smaller flocks where the feed is really good. I’m only dropping her because her growth and milk scores are right on the edge of my keeper list, and I need to shrink my adult population a little bit. She can go with her ewelamb now (KMC23018) or solo in July when her lamb is weaned.

Offered for sale as a registered Katahdin ewe $275

Classic white ewe. She is part of a trio I bought at the 2014 KHSI Expo in Lincoln, NE from David Copen (Birch Cove Farm in Missouri). I’m finally retiring all three gals this year, as they’ve given me nine years of lambs, including many keeper daughters; and I’ve used sons out of all of them. This pedigree has a ram from North Dakota State University, some Kendra Messmer (Montana), Carl Ginapp (Iowa, now retired from sheep) and Lynn Fahrmeier (Missouri) in addition to Birch Cove. This girl is in good shape and should have several more years of lambing ahead of her, a good chance to capture some strong out-of-state NSIP genetics. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 1/1, 0/0, 1/1.

EBVs from the 2023 lamb crop WWT data. Photo taken May 2023. She has a white ram lamb at side born late Feb that could go with her, or he can be weaned and she can go to a new home any time.
