Offered for sale as a registered Katahdin ewe $275
Tall and framey white ewe. Modest on growth and survival, but good milk and prolificacy scores. This ewe came from Mary Bakko’s place (Misty River Farm, Moses Lake) when she retired; and she is a fairly tame and very assertive girl. She can be a fearless ringleader at spotting an open gate and dashing through it while the others all follow, but is also helpful as a herd boss when you want the mob to go somewhere. She has been a productive ewe, but missed lambing in 2021 and again this year, so she may be declining in productivity, this she’s priced as a pet. She’s healthy as a horse and in good weight, so she may be fine to lamb again for several years to come. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 3/3, 2/2, 3/3, 0/0, 1/1, 0/0
Photo taken May 2023. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data. This ewe is NSIP genotyped. She is open and can go to a new home any time.
