Breeding stock for sale
In 2019 we will have three ram lambs available for sale, and possibly some mature bred ewes at the end of the season.
Our 2019 Lacaune-sired ram lambs were born in February, sired by the Lacaune semen imported by DSANA in 2017.
Our program for selling ram lambs:
In January we select four ewes that we would potentially keep sale ram lambs from; this selection is based on milk yield and udder conformation.
We grow out these select ram lambs, and at about five months of age we assess them for conformation and structural correctness (mouth, feet, testicles, pizzle). If they do not pass this assessment, they will not be sold as breeding rams.
In early summer put together a paper listing the ram lambs available, their details and pictures, and giving the dams' production information and lineage, as well as udder pictures. We generally let the rams go to buyers starting at around six months of age.
Price: $800, to be picked up by September 30th.
We require a non-refundable 25% deposit on all breeding stock. The order in which we receive deposits is the order of choice of ram lambs. If we cannot supply a ram lamb to you (i.e., if because of death or poor assessment we do not have enough rams to meet the received orders), we will refund your deposit.
On this page we have attached the breeding stock information we have supplied to inquiries over the last three years. We include them as a record of the type of information that we think anyone wanting to buy dairy animals should have. Information on the 2019 ram lambs, and any mature ewes that might become available in the fall, will be attached to this page as it becomes ready.
If you would like to receive this information as it becomes available, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
