I am looking for lambs in NM or nearby... not 100% sure on the breed, still some discussion between MIL & I, and price/availability will determine the final decision. We need 2-4 ewes, and one unrelated ram. Our goal is to produce our own line of milk stock. We intended to buy Dorset ewes and AI to British Milk Sheep from Ewenity in Canada, but cannot find Dorsets in NM (though we did find some across the state in CO and may make a trip to see them), and a few people have been discouraging us from trying the AI route. We arent opposed to keeping a ram, but are told they can be mean and have to be housed away from the ewes. (I grew up with dairy goats, and cannot imagine a ram being meaner or harder to handle than a big, ornery goat- though we quickly got rid of the mean ones and only bred good temperaments. We bred for good temperaments in our goats, I breed for temperament in my chickens and horses, so I'm sure it can be done in sheep too!)

Oh- eta- we'd prefer good wool, polled, meaty, multiple lambs, gentle/calm temperaments, and MIL LOVES black faces/legs- but all areas are negotiable at this point! Also, we'd LOVE a low price lol

Both Dorsets and British Milk Sheep are whitefaced but you could use a blackfaced ram as a terminal sire on your lesser-quality ewes. Nothing wrong with AI in sheep, it's just expensive.

Pretty hard to have a sheep flock without a ram at least part of the time. Most are fine as long as you practice safety, it's just the few killers that give them a bad reputation.

For Dorsets, be SURE to get production-type and not show-type. There's a good Yahoo group, just search ProdDorsetBreeders. That's a really good breed if you can't find true dairy ewes with extended lactation genetics.

I'm in the cincinnati area and looking for a couple of feeder lambs for spring. I prefer hair sheep, but doesn't matter as long as its a meat breed and healthy. They'll be keeping the pasture down over summer and filling the freezer in fall.

If you'll have lambs ready this spring PM me with details.

Katahdin Ewes in Illinois

Looking at another new hip this summer and I need fewer animals here. These are not cull animals, they would be staying if I thought I was in a position to take care of them.

I have one heavy bred ewe left. $300

Ewes, most had twins or triplets this year. Yearlings to 5 years old. $175 OBO

Spring lambs, lots of color $125

Easiest place to see to see them is Facebook. You don't have to be a member, it is a public page. https://www.facebook.com/LittleBitFarm

Shropshire/Oxford Cross ewelambs

These are quality ewelambs that come from a flock that makes really good meat/clublambs. I had a plethora of ewelambs born this year so am parting with some really good ones.

I have a June yearling ewe for sale $250 that I kept as a replacement but am wanting to keep a couple of this year's ewelambs & my pasture is limited.


I also have 4 Feb ewelambs that will be weaned the end of April. $200 each. Discount if multiples are purchased.

Ewes for Sale in Maryland

I've got 5 sheep available. Two are Romney/Southdown (not babydoll) crosses, natural colored. They're 2 years old and were born here at my place. They're really nice ewes, and I'd love to keep them except I only have an acre and really dont' have space to keep all the animals I'd like. They're pretty calm girls, and up to date on CD/T. I'd love if they could go together, but will consider separate homes. I'd like $125 each for them. Their names are Bean and Barley.



I was also recently given 3 Suffolk ewes by a friend who just can't keep them anymore. His kids are grown and not interested in sheep any longer. These girls are in full fleece (more than a year's worth) so I'll get pictures after they're shorn in a couple weeks. One gal is older, and shouldn't be bred, so she'll go for free as a companion. The other two are young, but I'm not exactly sure how old. The owner thought they were around 3 years, but he couldn't remember exactly. Asking $125 for each ewe as well, and the older one will go free as a companion. Again, I'll get pictures of them after they've been shorn.

I'm located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

We're located in Southern Ohio, east of Cincinnati.
We have a red Katahdin ram lamb for sale. He is 4 months old and is still with his mama, although he is eating hay, grain, and pasture grass. We're splitting the flock up this week (taking the lambs away in preparation for putting the ewes with the rams. He's in the picture here, trying to sneak a drink from Mama, who is trying to wean him, much against his will! He is full Katahdin. We have both parents on the farm. He weighs about 50 lbs. We're asking $150.00 for him.

I have an adult ewe for sale. I'm going to call her a commercial ewe. She's 1/2 finn and should be able to produce triplets easily for you. She can produce meat lambs or fleece lambs. She's large- my largest ewe. Finns are cross bred into commercial flocks to increase lambing rates. This ewe's dam was from such a flock. The dam is one of quints and has produces triplets for me every year with no help and has easily raised them. The ewe had twin gray rams for me this year when bred to my gray finn ram in her first lambing. She's a good ewe, but I'm selling my crosses to concentrate on my finns. $200. I'm traveling to MO this summer and can deliver along that route if needed.

I have 2 ewe lambs born in this March that are sisters to the above ewe for sale. All are going to be larger ewes with nice soft fleeces.
