KMC 3003

Offered for sale as a registered Katahdin Ewe (Pet) $250

Very sweet middle aged ewe who comes from a very productive family and has tremendous EBVs for prolificacy and survival. But she is weak on growth and milk; and as she’s aged and her udder has sustained wear ‘n tear, she can no longer raise triplets, though she likes to have them! She is priced at cull/pet price. She will be bred in November, so if you purchase her before she lambs, you’ll be on the hook to bottle supplement them. If she lambs here, I’ll likely let her keep one lamb and will orphan any others, and she could go to a new home in April with whatever lamb she has at side.

Her pedigree has Aspen Mountain Farm (Aileen Scott, Montana) and now-retired White Post farm from the East Coast, as well as other local genetics. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 3/3, 3/1

Photo taken November 2020. EBVs from the 2020 lamb crop PWWT data. This ewe is being bred now in November, to lamb in April 2021.

Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $275, exposed

Feminine white ewelamb. Modest growth, good prolificacy and survival, and a phenomenal milk score. Pedigree has Aspen Mountain (Aileen Scott, Montana) ewe and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, retired), as well as KRK genetics (Karen Kenagy, Oregon).

Photo taken November 2020.  EBVs from 2020 lamb crop PWWT data. This ewe has been exposed to a ram starting 11/8. Rams are wearing marking harnesses, so I will know her breed date. Note that for me, ewelambs have about a 50/50 chance of conceiving in their yearling year, so no guarantees; but plan on feeding her well in case she is bred.

Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $275, exposed

Standard white ewelamb. Her growth and milk scores are rather modest, but her prolificacy and survival scores are extremely high, which renders her a pretty good index. She will likely have at least a few triplets in her lifetime, if not a lot of them, and they will be vigorous; but not your fastest growers. Pedigree is mostly my stock, tracing back to Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, retired), and On the Lamb Farm (Sara Jo Gahm, Arlington).

Offered for sale as a registered 7 year old old ewe, $375, exposed

This is a steady, middle-aged ewe, solid chocolate, good shedder, calm and gentle. She will likely produce a good lamb crop well into her teens. She has been a good producer here, though she is a very quiet/ non-vocal sheep. So if her lambs get separated and start hollering, she won’t necessarily get hysterical and holler back or run to them; she’ll just calmly wait for them to find her. This doesn’t pose a problem on a small acreage with few ewes and lambs, or in a shed-lambing operation. But in big fields with several hundred sheep in a pasture-lambing setting, it can be a recipe for lost lambs. So I’ve had to keep a little bit of an eye on her lambs when they are young, or jug her for a few days in the field to give them a good start. I chose to orphan-rear one of her triplets in 2019 because it was also non-assertive and was not keeping up with her.

This girl has solid and balanced EBVs across the board, I’m only selling her because her index is starting to dip into my lower quartile, and because it’s a little extra work for me to keep an eye on her during lambing. She will be a great foundation ewe for someone starting a small flock. Line-bred on an old Bert Martineau ram, with Just Plain Sheep and a North Dakota State U ram, and some KRK (Oregon) genetics in her pedigree.

Photo taken November 2020. EBVs from 2020 lamb crop 120 day weight data. Lambing records starting as a yearling: 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 3/1 (2 stillborn), 3/2 (1 orphan-reared), 1/1
This ewe has been exposed to a ram starting 11/8. Rams are wearing marking harnesses, so I will know her breed date.

Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $275, exposed

White ewelamb, positive EBVs and an especially good survival score. Lower on NLB so isn’t as likely to have triplets. Pedigree has Aspen Mountain (Aileen Scott, Montana) ewe and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, retired), plus Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa) and Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri).

Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $300, exposed

Very pretty, classic white ewe. Good growth and milk scores, positive on survival and more modest on prolificacy, this girl probably won’t have a lot of triplets. Total Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri) breeding, that traces to some of the best NSIP lines in the nation; she is one of the few ewelambs I’m selling out of my two new rams from Missouri. I’m keeping her sibling and my policy is I normally don’t retain both twins, so this one is an opportunity to get a total out-of-state pedigree and some really good NSIP genetics.

Classic white ewelamb with brown ear tips and a spotted face. Positive, balanced EBVs across the board, though a little lower on prolificacy than I prefer.

Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $350, exposed

Classic white ewelamb, really nicely put together. Positive growth metrics and really stellar prolificacy, survival and milk. This lamb is out of my top-indexing ewe. I am keeping her sibling and don’t normally keep both in a set of twins, so she’s an opportunity to get some of my best genetics. Pedigree has Aspen Mountain (Aileen Scott, Montana) ewe and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, retired), tracking back to KRK and Just Plain Sheep (Jody Ouradnik). This ewe meets the criteria for NSIP Maternal Certified.

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

A big-framed white ewe with a clean-shedding hair coat.Very strong growth EBVs and good milk; though her prolificacy is on the lower-end, from both her pedigree, and her own variability of singles, twins and triplets. I’ve kept her this long to leverage her good growth and milk scores, but it’s time to let her contribute her big-frame genetics to someone else’s farm. Sire is from local PNW genetics, dam is from Aspen Mountain Farm (Aileen Scott, Montana). Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 3/3, 1/1

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe $400, exposed

Beautiful Hereford-red ewe, very well put together. Moderate frame size. Positive growth EBVs, lower on milk and prolificacy. She’ll likely steer clear of triplets most of the time. Pedigree is a blend of Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired) plus hardy, old-stock local genetics, including a ram out of the old Bert Martineau line, one of the original Washington State Katahdin commercial flocks. Breeding record starting as a two-year-old: 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2.
