KMC 7034

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe $480 with ram lamb at side through 8/15

White ewe with the East Coast body style and curly coat type (but sheds well). Great growth and milk, lower on prolificacy, though she is a good twinner, she just may avoid having triplets. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 2/2, 2/1, 2/2. Sire from Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa), dam out of local genetics and White Post Farm (East Coast, now retired), and the old Bert Martineau line.

This ewe has annoyed me some with her propensity to lose track of one lamb. In 2019 and 2020 she either had one lamb of two that didn’t grow well or took on a life of bumming/bottle by choice, so I thought maybe she had a bad udder. This year one of her newborns had wandered or followed another sheep for a few hours, and she didn’t want to take it back. I stanchioned her and she accepted it, and both boys are growing great, so I don’t think milk is a problem. Being familiar with her hungry lambs the last three years, I will say she throws extremely aggressive eaters and growers, that learn to hog down a bottle in 60 seconds and will bum off every ewe that sits still for a moment. But, she may do better in a small flock that jugs ewes with newborns, or just has less going on in the birth scene that can cause her to mismother. (My sheep lamb in the challenging outdoor environment of electronet grids on grass with 100+ other sheep in close proximity.) Her pedigree has very good maternal genetics, and two of her daughters are here and are great mothers.

Photo taken May 2021. EBVs from 2021 lamb crop birth data. One of her ram lambs recently had a serious leg injury, so I’m keeping him here to repair him. She is being sold with the other ram lamb at side (out of USD 19094). Price good for the set through mid-August, after that, ram lamb will be weaned and she can go solo for $300. Current price reflects dam as registered, and ram lamb as commercial. $180 more (now or later) for ram lamb registration paperwork.

Diverse, pedigree has Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, retired), Aspen Mountain Farm (Aileen Scott, Montana),  and Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri).

Offered for sale as a registered ewe $525 with ewelamb at side

Really pretty, well-put-together white ewe. She birthed a stillborn single this spring. She was such a dedicated¬† mother that for hours, she pawed and worked at that lamb to get it up until she wore the hair off of it! She was in great distress when I finally took it away. I had a weak lamb in the barn from another mother that I grafted onto her, and she took it with ease. She is extremely maternal and remained very protective of her adopted lamb. Pedigree is a blend of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Misty River (Mary Bakko, now retired), On the Lamb Farm (Arlington) and Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa). She was open last year, I usually have one or two ewes that miss a season but go on to lamb normally in the future, as she seems to have done.¬†She’s three, heading into her most productive years, and she lambed as a yearling, which is a plus. Her EBVs are good for growth and milk, and she’s taken a bit of a hit on NLB both for her own sake, and because her sire is low. But if she’s fed well, she will likely mostly be a twinner in the future.

Photo taken May 2021, she’s still in the process of shedding, and is a clean shedder.¬† EBVs from 2021 lamb crop birth data. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 0/0, 1/1. She can go with her adopted lamb at side, a chocolate ewelamb (out of KMC 19122 and BC H¬† 974), by¬† 6/30/21 for $525.

Offered for sale as a registered ewe $550 with ewelamb at side

Flashy chocolate and white pinto ewe. Really strong growth and milk, but low on prolificacy, this girl may single more than she triplets. There are plenty of triplets in her family, though, so it is not out of the question. Pedigree is a blend of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Misty River (Mary Bakko, now retired), White Post (East Coast, new retired), and some old genetics from Bert Martineau, also now retired.

Photo taken May 2021, she is still in the process of shedding.  EBVs from 2021 lamb crop birth data. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 1/1, 1/1. She can go with her lamb at side, a red-spotted ewelamb (out of USD 19094), by  6/30/21 for $550.

KMC 4051

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin  $425 with ram lamb at side

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 KRK 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, 2/2.

Photo taken November 2020.¬† EBVs from 2021 lamb crop birth data. She had twins this year, but I can see that one side of her udder has become unproductive, probably from subclinical mastitis in a past year. One of her lambs was not thriving by week three, so I transitioned him to the bottle and sold him as a grower. She’s got a remaining ram lamb at side (sired by BC H 974) that’s growing well, a very flashy dark chocolate lamb with long white socks and tail. I’ll get a pic of him soon! I have priced her as a pet/cull ewe price. She can continue to be bred, but new owner will have to supplement the lambs in years where she twins. The pair is priced at $425 before the end of June. Ewe comes with registration cert, ram lamb is commercial (or registration paperwork for $100 additional).
