Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $275, exposed
Very dark chocolate ewelamb. Positive growth, good milk and survival, but modest on prolificacy, she’ll likely steer away from triplets most of the time. Pedigree blends local genetics with Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, retired), Aspen Mountain (Aileen Scott, Montana), and a On The Lamb Farm ram that goes back to White Post (East Coast, now retired). This should be a solid, uncomplicated ewe.
Photo taken Aug 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. Note that for me, ewelambs have about a 50/50 chance of conceiving in their yearling year, so no guarantees; but plan on feeding her well in case she is bred.
