Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin yearling ewe, $325
Pretty white ewe with one very dark brown front leg and a lot of black spots. Modest on growth and lower on prolificacy, but incredible milk score (top 1%). She also has pretty good parasite resistant scores, and their accuracy is higher because Caleb measures. Pedigree traces back to Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri), a USDA ram from the Booneville Research Station we were able to borrow in the PNW in 2019, and Good Shepherd Farm (Caleb Pirc, Idaho) plus a little from Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired) and my own genetics. As you can see, she is an incomplete shedder as a yearling. I suspect in subsequent years, she will either shed adequately to be considered a B coat, she’s on the edge now, but still a C coat this year.
Photo taken August 2023. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data. She is NSIP genotyped. This ewe did not lamb as a yearling and is ready to go to a new home today and breed this fall!
