KMC 18048

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $420 with wether lamb at side

Flashy red pinto spotted ewe, great shedder. Positive EBVs and a little low on milk; this girl should be an easy keeper that doesn’t stray into triplets very often. Diverse pedigree, her maternal grandmother is from Birch Cove Farm in Missouri, and she’s got a good mix of old-stock WA genetics; plus a Dorper cross three generations back on the maternal side.

Photo taken May 2019.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop birth data. This ewe can go with her (wethered) white ram lamb at side before July 7th, or solo after I wean him in August.

KMC 18119

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, $300

This is a gorgeous, feminine ewe with very striking red pinto markings. She has good growth metrics, modest on prolificacy and a little low on milk. But, she comes from very old genetics- KRK33 was a ewe who lived 13 years and had 30 lambs in her lifetime, so prolificacy and milk is there on the maternal side, but 33’s data wasn’t captured in NSIP. This pedigree brings in some genetics from Iowa (Thistle Grove Farm) and Missouri (Birch Cove Farm).

KMC 18062

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $300

A beautiful, balanced and long-bodied white ewe. Positive growth and milk, and a pretty high NLB, so this girl will likely have some triplets in her lifetime if she’s well-fed. She has Missouri (Birch Cove Farm), Iowa (Thistle Grove Farm) and now-retired Misty River Farm (eastern WA) genetics; so this is a very diverse pedigree.

KMC 18151

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $450 with ewelamb at side

A classic white, feminine ewe. She has positive growth and milk metrics, and moderate prolificacy; so should be an easy-care ewe. Her pedigree brings in fresh blood from Iowa and Missouri, two grass-fed NSIP flocks that have brought me strong genetic improvement. She lambed freely on pasture and is being a great mother as a yearling. She has a chocolate ewelamb at side (not pictured), sired by KMC7018. Selling them as a pair for $450 if picked up before July 7th.

Photo taken May 2019.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop birth data. This ewe can go any time with her ewelamb at side; or solo after lamb is weaned in August.

Full disclosure: this ewe’s dam and grandam both had vaginal prolapse, which can be hereditary; and some people cull for it on first offense. In my own flock, I don’t consider it a “dealbreaker” unless it recurs, because it’s also often caused by environmental/ nutrition issues. Other ewes from these lines have not shown the problem. Since this ewe lambed normally as a yearling, I don’t feel she or her daughter are very likely to repeat this issue. But I do like to be transparent about potential defects, and I have discounted her from what I would charge if she did not have this question mark in her history.

KMC 18092

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $450 with ewelamb at side

A pretty, refined buckskin colored ewe with white socks and tail. She has positive growth and milk metrics, and moderate prolificacy; so should be an easy-care ewe. She lambed freely and is showing very strong maternal behavior as a yearling. She has a very flashy-marked panda faced ewelamb at side. The lamb is purebred, but I don’t know who the sire is, as this ewe was bred late while running with a large group of butcher lambs in the winter. The ewelamb can be recorded as 50% if the buyer desires. Selling them as a pair for $450 if picked up before July 7th.

Offered for sale as a registered ewe with ram lamb at side $395 before 6/30/19

A very standard white ewe and a good mama. Her dam was a very productive ewe here, raising 30 lambs over a thirteen year lifespan. Unfortunately, she didn’t get credit for that prolificacy because she arrived here too old to have most of her lamb crops counted in NSIP; so this girl’s NLB score is lower than it should be, which also drops her index down. I believe this ewe is likely to twin most of her life. Her growth scores are modest, and her milk score is also low. So if she does ever have triplets, one might be poised to orphan-rear one, feed her really well, or be prepared for slower growing lambs. In general I expect this ewe will be productive and easy-care for many years to come.

This ewe is an upgrade to purebred status, as her dam was a recorded ewe. Her lambing record starting as a two-year-old: 2/2, 2/1. She had a stillborn lamb this year along with a healthy twin. Photo taken Jan 2019.  EBVs from April 2019 lamb crop birth data. This ewe can go with her ram lamb at side (as an unregistered grower- #19120, a fawn colored ram with white socks) before the end of June for $395. After that, I will wean the lamb and raise the price on both.
