We want to take the time to thank each of our buyers and wish each one the best with their lambs!
Our 2013 lambs are looking real nice. Weight gains have been excellent, with the average being from .60 to .80 pounds per day all the way to one hundred and twenty days on pasture. We are seeing a big increase due to the improved grasses for the sheep. Ninty day weights are as high as eighty pounds and the average would be well over sixty-five pounds. With the right genetics, care, and feed these animals perform real well on a forage diet of mixed grasses and legumes. For more information, please visit our 2013 Registered Katahdin lambs home page.
There is a nice selection of lambs to choose from in both the commercial and foundation flocks offspring. Our entire flock is DNA tested for Scrapie resistance. Through selective breeding and the large genetic pool of over two hundred and seventy animals represented in our flocks, we are able to produce top quality animals.
The performance of each ewe and her lambs is carefully charted from birth. Giving lambs the right start through proper feed, vitamins, minerals, and socialization goes with them for life. Getting off on the 'right foot' makes the animal more productive throughout its life.
If you need Katahdin lambs in the Midwest, feel free to contact us and we will help you find good quality stock in that area. Our family maintains around four hundred Katahdins near Sedalia, MO.
We sell top quality freezer lambs in late summer to early fall. You can arrange to pick up the animal of your choice here on the farm, or it can be delivered for a small fee depending on the distance. Each lamb is grass fed on the highest quality forage to yield optimum growth in our lush meadows.
