Offered for sale as a registered five year old ewe, $375, exposed to a ram staring 11/3/18
This is a very standard white Katahdin ewe with great maternal instincts and a really calm temperament. She comes from a dam that had 30 lambs in her lifetime of 13 years, but didn’t get credit for them all in her NSIP EBVs because she joined the program mid-life. The sire was a big, framey East-coast style Katahdin out of White Post genetics, which are no longer around. She’s dropping out of my program because she’s got modest EBVs and I’m always striving for more growth and milk. But she’ll make a good mama in a beginner’s flock, where she’s bound to do a good job and let her owner learn about sheep!
EBVs from 2018 120 day lamb crop data. Photo taken July 2018.. Lambing record starting as a 2-year old: 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 3/1 (this last set, I pulled one to help her out, and another was lost due to our terrible spring weather- none of this was her fault).
