Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewe $375, exposed
Feminine white ewe. Modest growth EBVs, but positive prolificacy and a strong milk score make up for it, giving her a good index. Diverse blend of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired), Misty Oaks Farm (Kathy Bielek, Ohio), Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, Iowa), and Aspen Mountain Farms (Aileen Scott, Montana). As you can see in the photo, she didn’t shed completely this year, she was a borderline C coat. But these dreads may come off next year; and it’s not enough to require shearing. I’ve discounted her a little because of this.
Photo taken November 2020. EBVs from 2020 lamb crop PWWT data. This ewe has been exposed to a ram starting 11/8. Rams are wearing marking harnesses, so I will know her breed date.
