Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin ewelamb, $300
Blocky white ewelamb. Her dam is older and seemed to have an iffy milk supply, so I pulled this lamb to orphan-rear. Solid growth EBVs and really good maternal metrics. Diverse NSIP genetics from Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Misty Oaks (Kathy Bielek, OH), Thistle Grove Farm (Dr. John Bare DVM, Iowa), KRK (Karen Kenagy, OR) and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, 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 and is eating creep feed well. I usually wean these around 8 weeks, so by mid May 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 mid July.
