Offered for sale as a registered ewe $625 with twin wether lambs at side
A really big-bodied, solid, reliable ewe with good growth EBVs, and low on prolificacy scores. Her lambing record starting as a 2-year-old: 1/1, 1/0, 2/2. So, she may waffle between twins and singles, but is likely to twin for several years since she’s in her most productive years. Last year she had a huge single ram lamb that was shoulder-locked in delivery overnight. I didn’t find it in time to pull it and save it, so that wasn’t really her fault, and that hurt her NLW score. But that year, I grafted two unrelated lambs onto her instead; she was a very receptive, and became a very maternal and protective mother of them. So, I think she’s a good ewe for a starter flock, stable and experienced.
Photo taken June 2019. EBVs from 2019 lamb crop WWT data run. She can go with her (to be castrated) grower ram lambs at side by the end of August, or solo after they are weaned early Sept for $275. One of her ram lambs is in the foreground of the photo, the other one is also white with some black spots.
