Offered for sale as a registered 4-year old ewe, $400, exposed
Well-framed, white ewe with tan spots. She has a barely-noticeable parrot mouth (overshot jaw), the only one I’ve ever seen in my flock; not too worrisome to me in a ewe, but worth mentioning. Good growth metrics and moderate on milk, but low on prolificacy. The latter is low on her dam’s side for NLB and on her sire’s side for NLW; but in both cases the other side is stronger and she seems to be producing well so far. Her pedigree is a diverse blend incorporating a strong grandsire from North Dakota State University and a maternal grandma from David Coplen’s Birch Cove Farm in Missouri, both strong NSIP flocks. She is a good mother, in 2019 she had a stillborn twin and I was easily able to graft another orphan onto her to raise. Her lambing record starting as a 2-year-old: 2/2, 2/2 (raised twins w/ grafter), 1/1.
EBVs from the 2019 lamb crop PWWT data. Photo taken November 2020. This ewe has been exposed to a ram starting 11/8. Rams are wearing marking harnesses, so I will know her breed date.
