Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $500 with wether lamb at side

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.

Photo taken May 2019 with her lamb.  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop WWT data. This girl can go with her (to be castrated) grower ram lamb at side as a pair before the end of August. In Sept, she can go solo for $300 once I wean her lamb.
