Offered for sale as a registered ewe $400, exposed to a ram
Classic white ewe with really good growth and very high prolificacy, this girl likely has triplets in her future. Her milk score is a little low, but her mother can successfully raise triplets, so I think this girl will be able to as well. She is the only yearling here who had twins this year, so that is a strong data point for prolificacy already. She lambed freely on pasture and was a very attentive mother to her teeny twins. But unfortunately she laid on one when it was a day old. 🙁 This doesn’t happen very often because Kat lambs are usually vigorous enough to wiggle out, but twins from a yearling are indeed very tiny, so I don’t think this lamb was strong enough. So, this girl is raising her remaining ram lamb as a single.
