Offered for sale as a registered ewe, $275
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!
She has a ram lamb at side that can go with her, castrated, for $150 as a grower lamb, before mid-August when he is weaned and they’ll go their separate ways.
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)
