Offered for sale as a purebred, record-able Katahdin ewelamb $350
Classic white ewelamb. NSIP Maternal Certified designation. Dam is one of my best ewes, from the now-retired Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake). Sire is a very strong scoring ram from Birch Cove Farm in Missouri (David Coplen).
Sire has a Texel several generations back in his pedigree, so we’re benefitting from some heterosis there, as well as the potential for the myostatin (double muscling) gene. This ram didn’t shed well last year so I haven’t upgraded him yet, but I think this year he might. If he doesn’t, this ewe will be record-able and will need a hair coat inspection next year to upgrade to 100% purebred registration (I am a hair coat inspector, so I can do that for you).
This is one of the best ewelambs born here this year, but I’m keeping her sib, and I don’t usually keep both of twins. She’s got stellar and balanced EBVs across the board, low birth weight, while growth, prolificacy, survival and milk- all are very, very strong! So it’s a nice opportunity to get one of my highest scoring ewelambs into your flock’s genetics.
