KMC 24025

Offered for sale as a purebred, record-able Katahdin ewelamb $300

This is one chubby bunny white ewelamb!  She is the result of an accidental breeding last August, so any of my sixty-some ram lambs here at that time would have been candidate sires. She is purebred, but only recordable at 50%. Her dam traces back to Birch Cove (David Copen, Missouri) and my own genetics.

Photo taken May 2024 .  EBVs from 2024 BWT data. (EBVs are lower than expected because the sire component averaged in has zeroes.) She can be weaned and ready to go to a new home in June.

Offered for sale as a purebred, record-able Katahdin ewelamb $300

Feminine red ewelamb.  She is the result of an accidental breeding last August, so any of my sixty-some ram lambs here at that time would have been candidate sires. She is purebred, but only recordable at 50%. Her dam traces back to Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare DVM Iowa) and my own genetics.

KMC 24003

Offered for sale as a purebred, record-able Katahdin ewelamb $350

Classic white ewe. ¬†She is the result of an accidental breeding last August, so any of my sixty-some ram lambs here at that time would have been candidate sires. She is purebred, but only recordable at 50%. Her dam traces back to Birch Cove (David Copen, Missouri) and my own genetics. A super cool factoid: she is homozygous for the myostatin “double muscling” gene that’s been brought into our gene pool from Texel upgrades. I can already see the difference in the beefiness of her back end, compared to her carrier sibling.

Photo taken May 2024 (she is the one on the right, pictured with her twin sib).  EBVs from 2024 BWT data. (EBVs are lower than expected because the sire component averaged in has zeroes.)She will be weaned and ready to go to a new home in June.

KMC 23111

Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin yearling ewe $925 with twin ewelambs at side

Classic white ewe. Solid EBVs, she should be a strong producer of butcher lambs and replacement ewes. A mix of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Karen Kenagy (Oregon) and an old White Post ram way back there!

Photo taken May 2024.  EBVs from 2024 BWT data. She has twin ewelambs at side, born 4/22/24. They were born during cleanup ram timeframe so not sure of sire. Selling them as commercial/ 50% record-able, but for an added price I could DNA test them and determine sire so they could be registered. Sold as a set at this price through 6/30. Lambs will be weaned in August and can go separately.

Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin yearling ewe $350

Very framey white ewe. Rock solid EBVs, she should be a strong producer of butcher lambs and replacement ewes. A mix of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM Iowa) and a USDA ram we were lucky to borrow on the west coast for a year.

Photo taken May 2024.  EBVs from 2024 BWT data. This ewe is open and ready to go to a new home and breed this fall.

KMC 21047

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe, $805 with twin lambs at side

Sturdy black-faced ewe.¬† Balanced but modest EBVs except she comes from a high prolificacy dam line. Pedigree is a blend of Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri), Lyn Fahrmeier (Missouri), Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired), and KRK (Karen Kenagy, Oregon). Lambing record starting as a yearling: 2/1, 2/0, 2/2.¬†She had some bad luck, lost one twin to clostridium in 2022 (no fault of hers), and had a twin pregnancy in 2023, one fetus perished early and the other lamb was big and died of dystocia during a night birth. This year she’s doing great with a set of twins.

Photo taken May 2024. EBVs from 2024 lamb crop BWT data.  She is NSIP genotyped. She has a ewe and ram lamb at side, both white, born 4/8/24 sired by KRK18560. Sold as a set at this price before 6/30 with the ram lamb wethered. For an additional fee he can go intact and register-able. Prices will go up in July and the lambs will be weaned in August and they can go separately.

KMC24029

Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin ram lamb $450

Classic white ram. He is the result of an accidental breeding last August, but DNA was able to confirm his sire. His pedigree is largely composed of Birch Cove genetics (David Coplen, MO), though his sire is a ram bred by Caleb Pirc in Idaho.

EBVs from 2024 lamb crop birth data. (They will be updated in May w/ sire data accounted for.) Photo taken May 2024. He will be weaned early June and ready to go to a new home and start breeding this summer/fall!

Strong-bodied blackface ram with black spotting on his legs. He is the result of an accidental breeding last August, so any of my sixty-some ram lambs here at that time would have been candidate sires. He is purebred, but only recordable at 50%.  His dam is a blend of local/my genetics and Birch Cove (David Coplen,Missouri)

EBVs from 2024 lamb crop birth data. (EBVs are lower than expected because the sire component averaged in has zeroes.) Photo taken May 2024, pictured with his dam. He will be weaned early June and ready to go to a new home and start breeding this summer/fall!

KMC 24005

Offered for sale as a 50% record-able Katahdin ram lamb $375

Standard white ram with fun panda eye markings. He is the result of an accidental breeding last August, so any of my sixty-some ram lambs here at that time would have been candidate sires. He is purebred, but only recordable at 50%. The fact that he is a myostatin gene carrier hints that he’s got BC H 973 in his sire’s background somewhere (not his direct sire, but perhaps grandsire or great grandsire). His dam traces back to Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired) and Birch Cove (David Copen, Missouri).

EBVs from 2024 lamb crop birth data. (EBVs are lower than expected because the sire component averaged in has zeroes.) Photo taken May 2024. He will be weaned early June and ready to go to a new home and start breeding this summer/fall!
