Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ewelamb $300, genotyped
Very pretty, framey white ewe. Balanced and positive EBVs, especially strong on milk and survival. Dam traces back to Thistle Grove Farm in Iowa (John Bare, DVM) and Aspen Mountain Katahdins (Aileen Scott, MT). We in the PNW have been lucky to borrow a ram from the USDA Research Station in Booneville, AR; Dr. Joan Burke is lending him to our region so that we can get better linkage to the “cluster” of flocks in the Midwest/South. He’s been on a tour through Idaho and Oregon, and made a stop here in 2020 to be used in my flock, and he’s headed East now. Take advantage of some great out-of-state genetics!
Photo from February 2022. EBVs from 2021 lamb crop EPWWT data and includes the new Genomics run calculations, and this ewe is genotyped herself. NSIP is currently not reporting the USA HAIR index, until it can be updated with the new Genomics calculations. This ewelamb is register-able, weaned, and ready to go to a new home today! She was exposed to a ram in winter, but tested open in Feb. So likely ready to breed and lamb as a 2-year-old.
