Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, $375
Behold this ewe- she is a gorgeous physical specimen! She is quite large-framed, a good shedder and has really strong growth EBVs, good survival and milk, and moderate prolificacy. I have kept her twin sister, so am parting with this exceptional-looking ewe only because I can’t keep too many of the same thing. She is a blend of two different ewes from David Copen’s Birch Cove Farm in Missouri. I’ve had fantastic luck with his genetics, he has a very mature breeding program on grass with low inputs, and his stock is hardy and productive! There are quite a few red sheep (and a badger!) in this pedigree, so she will throw color some of the time.
EBVs from the 2018 lamb crop 60 day weight data. Photo taken in July. She did not lamb as a yearling, which is true of about half my yearlings this year.
