Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe, $425, with ram lamb at side
Standard white ewe with good growth and milk scores, but low on prolificacy. She was open last year, which happens sometimes, so that hurts her score some, but a lot of animals in her pedigree are also lower in NLB/NLW. So this girl will tend away from triplets, though they are not unheard of in her pedigree, either. Lambing record starting as a two-year old: 2/2, (open), 1/1.
Diverse pedigree blending genetics from KRK Katahdins in Oregon, Birch Cove (David Coplen) in Missouri, Just Plain Sheep in Moses Lake (now retired), Hasbrouk Farms in Shelton (with a little White Dorper thrown in there several generations back), and North Dakota State University’s research flock. This ewe will be a good producer for many more years, and is a good starter ewe for someone who would prefer to steer clear of the complexity of multi-births most of the time.
