Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, bred $475
A nice-sized white ewe with some red markings. She has a slick, early-shedding coat. Positive growth numbers and higher on the prolificacy scale, I would expect this girl to have occasional triplets.
This ewe has been exposed to a ram, due to lamb in April. Her lambs will be registerable. Keep in mind that mature ewes usually twin, so the floor of profit is $400 in butcher lambs, more if you sell some registered lambs or have triplets, so bred ewes have a great ROI. There are no guarantees on pregnancy status, since viability is mostly due to handling and feeding; but I rarely have one end up open. EBVs from this year’s lamb crop data. Photo taken early June.
