Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin $425 with ram lamb at side
A big-framed white ewe with a clean-shedding hair coat. Very strong growth EBVs and good milk; though her prolificacy is on the lower-end, from both her pedigree, and her own variability of singles, twins and triplets. I’ve kept her this long to leverage her good growth and milk scores, but it’s time to let her contribute her big-frame genetics to someone else’s farm. Sire is from local KRK genetics, dam is from Aspen Mountain Farm (Aileen Scott, Montana). Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 3/3, 1/1, 2/2.
Photo taken November 2020. EBVs from 2021 lamb crop birth data. She had twins this year, but I can see that one side of her udder has become unproductive, probably from subclinical mastitis in a past year. One of her lambs was not thriving by week three, so I transitioned him to the bottle and sold him as a grower. She’s got a remaining ram lamb at side (sired by BC H 974) that’s growing well, a very flashy dark chocolate lamb with long white socks and tail. I’ll get a pic of him soon! I have priced her as a pet/cull ewe price. She can continue to be bred, but new owner will have to supplement the lambs in years where she twins. The pair is priced at $425 before the end of June. Ewe comes with registration cert, ram lamb is commercial (or registration paperwork for $100 additional).
