Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $325, genotyped
Beautiful, feminine wheaten colored ewe. Positive growth EBVs and modest maternal traits, a little weak on milk, but should be an uncomplicated producer. Sired by a framey, dark chocolate ram from Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri). Dam traces to On The Lamb Farm (SJG) and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired). I had a big run of stillborn births this year that I think was caused by grass tetany. This ewe was one of them, she delivered a healthy-looking, full-term but stillborn lamb that she tried hard to mother. I won’t count this against her as I think it was environmental.
Photo from May2022. She’s in the middle of shedding, but I expect all this to come off, she has a very slick hair coat below. EBVs from 2022 lamb crop BWT data and includes the new Genomics run calculations, and this ewe is genotyped herself. NSIP is currently not reporting the USA HAIR index, until it can be updated with the new Genomics calculations. This ewelamb is register-able and ready to go to a new home today.
