Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe, bred $450

This is a pretty reddish-brown ewe with a white tail and hind socks. She has strong growth EBVs and a positive milk score, so should have growthy lambs; but her prolificacy should steer away from frequent triplets. Her sire is my “maternal sire” ram from Iowa, John Bare, DVM’s flock at Thistle Grove Farm. ┬áThere are some Montana genetics on her maternal side, so she brings some fresh blood to the PNW.

This ewe has been exposed to a ram, due to lamb in April. Her lambs will be registerable. Keep in mind that mature ewes usually twin, so the floor of profit is $400 in butcher lambs, more if you sell some registered lambs or have triplets, so bred ewes have a great ROI. There are no guarantees on pregnancy status, since viability is mostly due to handling and feeding; but I rarely have one end up open. EBVs from┬áthis year’s lamb crop 120 day weight data.
