Offered for sale as a registered Katahdin ewe $425, exposed

Sweet eight year old orange pinto ewe. Balanced, non-extreme EBVs across the board. Really strong maternal behavior, she is a calm and attentive mother. I bought her at the 2014 KHSI Expo in Nebraska from David Coplen (Birch Cove in Missouri). As she’s aged, her udder is losing productivity, so she can practically only raise a single. She can do well with her extra lambs staying with her but being taught to nurse off a teat bucket. She is robust and healthy, so I think can lamb for several more years, with some help with the feeding of her lambs. This pedigree captures Thistle Grove farm (John Bare, DVM in Iowa), Carl Ginapp’s genetics (Iowa, now retired), Lynn Fahrmeier (Missouri), plus a lot of Birch Cove. A good chance to capture some out-of-town genetics from a long-time NSIP producer. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 2/2, 3/3, 2/2, 3/3, 3/2, 2/2, 1/1

Photo taken December 2022 and she is looking pretty huge. EBVs from 2022 lamb crop EPWWT data. This ewe is NSIP genotyped. She has been exposed to a ram since 9/20/22 and is expected to lamb in the March-April timeframe.
