Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin ewelamb, $300
This little busy bee is an orphan-rear triplet; her dam is older and can no longer feed triplets, so I pulled this one. She has really strong EBVs across the board, great maternal and growth genetics. Lots of out-of-state lines on this one, bringing in NSIP genetics from Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Lynn Farhmeier (Missouri) and Carl Ginapp’s flock (Iowa, now retired). She is a big girl and a good eater. Solid white.
Photo taken April 2023. EBVs from BWT data. She is trained to the teat bucket or will happily nurse off a bottle, and is eating creep feed well. She is somewhat friendly and would become more so with handling. I usually wean these around 8 weeks, so by late April she can go off milk and just be creep-fed. She can’t be weaned onto grass/ forage alone until she’s about four months old; so should continue to be offered high-protein creep through late June.
