Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $250
Cute white ewelamb with one orange spot. She is petite in stature, but she is heavy and well muscled already! Her mother is older and can’t raise triplets anymore, so I’ve orphan-reared this girl. She is trained to the teat bucket and is completely self-sufficient. Dam is out of old-stock WA genetics (Bert Martineau, now retired plus On the Lamb Farm); and also traces back to a White Post Farm (East Coast, now retired) ram. Sire is a “loaner” ram from the USDA Research Station in Booneville, AR; and we are lucky to have him up in the PNW, sharing good NSIP genetics from the Midwest and South. He brings genetics from Lee Wright and Lynn Fahrmeier, as well as more Birch Cove. This girl has modest growth EBVs, but good on milk and stellar on prolificacy and survival. Triplets are likely in her future, and she will raise a lot of lambs in her lifetime! I will likely keep 1-2 out of this set of triplet girls, so take advantage of this opportunity to get some of my “keeper” genetics!
Photo from May 2021. EBVs from 2021 lamb crop data. Price good through mid-June when she is weaned from milk. She will need to be creep-fed on grain concentrate and/or alfalfa hay until she’s 3-4 months old and her rumen is fully matured to be only on grass or grass hay.
