Offered for sale as a registered Katahdin ewe (pet) $275
Pretty white 8-year-old ewe with a modest frame size. She is a really mellow girl and a very dedicated mama who loves her babies. She has modest growth and survival EBVs, but is very strong in prolificacy and milk. But as she’s gotten older, her milk supply has dwindled, probably due to damage from subclinical mastitis in past years. This year she had twins and I let her raise a single, but even that one didn’t grow very well. So she could be retired out as a pet, or if someone wanted to breed her to capture some of these diverse genetics, just be ready to supplement her lambs. This ewe is out of the now-retired Misty River flock and John Bare’s Thistle Grove Farm in Iowa, both dedicated NSIP flocks. Lambing record starting as a two year old: 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 2/1, 2/2, 2/2, 2/1.
EBVs from the 2023 lamb crop WWT data. Photo taken May 2023. This ewe’s lambs are weaned and she can go to a new home today.
