Offered for sale as a purebred yearling Katahdin ewe $350
Really substantial, heavy-bodied, dark chocolate ewe. Good EBVs for growth, milk and survival; modest on prolificacy, she’ll tend towards singles/twins and away from triplets. Sired by a framey, dark chocolate ram from Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri). Dam traces to Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare DVM in Iowa) and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko in Moses Lake, now retired). There is a Texel several generations back in that sire’s pedigree, and the shedding impact is still lingering a bit, she is a B coat this year as a yearling (but she may shed fully in subsequent years, they often do). She did not breed to lamb as a yearling.
Photo from August 2022. EBVs from 2022 lamb crop WWT data and includes the new Genomics run calculations (this ewe is not genotyped herself). This ewe is ready to go to a new home today and be bred this fall.
