Potential for breeding stock, this ewe lamb comes from strong breeding stock genetics from both the Dam and on the Sire. After birth, she was upright and nursing within minutes.
Her dam is mostly Katahdin, with a small percentage of Dorper and her sire is purebred Dorper. Both Dam and Sire are pictured.
Her coat black and white, thick and soft, and she has black hooves. She should have a nice coat for winter, and an easy time shedding in the spring. She is a great size and conformation to consider breeding this fall, by about mid-October.
Our lambs are raised on high quality feed and are efficient foragers and weight gainers. Our flock has a high resistance to parasites and have tested negative for Johne's disease, Lentivirus (CAE/OPP), and Mycoplasma Ovipneumoniae on an annual basis. Hooves are genetically sound and strong.
No pesticides are used on our pasture. We have not needed to administer any de-wormer, antibiotics, or insecticide. Selenium paste has been administered and they have free access to mineral salts and sea kelp. CD& T was given at weaning (June 10th), and boosted on July 14th.
