Offered for sale as a commercial/pet ewe, $350 with ram lamb 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, 1/1. In 2019 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. That fall, she developed a case of mastitis which manifested outwardly in an abscess. I treated her with antibiotics and it healed fine, but she has a one-sided udder now. She may be able to raise twins in the future, but will likely need supplementation. Luckily she had a single lamb this year, so she will raise him easily. Thus,I have priced her at pet/cull price, though you could certainly breed her again if you were willing to bottle feed some.
