Offered for sale as a registered ram lamb $500

This is a substantial looking and very masculine white ram lamb. He was born as a twin, but raised as a triplet, grafted on to another ewe on a very confusing birthing day! Kudos to him and his flexibility to roll with whatever ewe was nearby, regardless of who is mother really was. He has very strong growth and milk numbers, but modest prolificacy, so will throw daughters that steer away from frequent triplets.

EBVs from 2017 120 day weight lamb crop data. Photo taken early Sept. This ram is weaned and ready to go to a new home today and start breeding right away!

Offered for sale as a registered ram lamb $500

This is a well-put-together, masculine-looking red ram with strong growth numbers and middle-of-the-road prolificacy. He’ll make good-growing butcher lambs and throw replacement ewes that grow big lambs but be less likely to have triplets. Lots of reds in this pedigree, he will throw plenty of colored babies.

Offered for sale as a pet wether $150  “Pig Pen”

This “Pig Pen”, a super cute little guy who just doesn’t want to grow into a big butcher lamb. He may have a pituitary gland problem or other genetic defect which is limiting his poundage and sexual maturation. He is healthy and robust, just diminutive, about half the size he should be at this age. He’s been in the barn a lot, so he’s pretty friendly and acclimated to people. He weighs about 35 lbs, (not much bigger than a Beagle!) so isn’t anywhere near a good butcher weight. This guy is looking for a pet home. He will be castrated before he leaves here, and is being sold as an unregistered, purebred Katahdin wether.

Photo taken early September. He is weaned and can go to a  new home today.

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.

This is a gorgeous, full-bodied and meaty ewe, with chocolate coloring and white spots on her face and legs. She has very good growth and milk scores, with lower prolificacy, so a great combo for those triplet-haters out there!

Offered for sale as a registered ram lamb $475

This is a beautiful buckskin ram with a white krunet marking. Really strong PWWT score, good milk, and modest prolificacy. He’ll make a good terminal sire, and will produce replacement ewes that throw growthy lambs but steer clear of triplets most of the time.

KMC 7114

Offered for sale as a registered ram lamb $475

A very standard white ram with solid growth numbers and strong prolificacy, survival and milk. This pedigree is a total outcross of two parents from out of state, so brings in very diverse genetics to the PNW. The sire is from Iowa, from John Bare’s Thistle Grove Farm. The dam is from David Coplen’s Birch Cove Farm. Both are breeding programs very focused on EBVs and maternal performance, and nearly everything in this pedigree is from top NSIP producers around the country. He makes the NSIP Stud Certified status as well as the NSIP Maternal Certified, which is very hard to get, and he’s the only ram lamb here this year to achieve it.

Annoyingly, this ram has scurs, at the very least, but they may turn into horns, so I have discounted him accordingly. His sire is scurred, and I found that he passed these genes on to about 5-10% of his lamb crop (rams only) each year. Scurs and horns are acceptable in our breed, just not preferred. So it seems a shame to waste these great maternal genetics over a cosmetic issue. Use him to produce butcher lambs and some great replacement ewes!

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.

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 lamb crop 120 day weight data.

Offered for sale as a registered ram lamb $475

This is a buckskin lamb with flashy white markings. His dam is new to my farm, so she lacks any NSIP data or accuracy, and was never bred before arriving here. But she is a big, deep-bodied ewe that’s mellow to handle and has been a good mother. I think there may be more potential in these genetics than the EBVs can tell us at this point, but so far, these twin rams have grown well.
