Breeding Stock For Sale

May 12, 2016

Watch our blog for more frequent updates on sales lists if you don't want to be placed on notification lists ahead of time. 

*******************************************************************************************

RAMS

Mature and  yearling rams available now. See tab at left for more details. 

Price is $700-1,025.

 

We crossed a few of our Dorset ewes onto a British-influenced, old-style Shropshire ram (from a NSIP flock) in fall 2015 via AI. We will be offering some rams from this F1 cross in late 2015 or early 2016. Contact us if you would like to be put on that notification list.  

 

We also will be AI'ing ewes in Fall 2016 to the Australian Dorset semen we imported (high emphasis on internal parasite resistance and carcass traits). Please contact us to be put on the notification list for those rams which will be sold in late 2017/early 2018.  

*************************************************************************************

EWES

It is not often that we sell mature ewes, so we don't typically keep a separate notification list for them. Watch our blog if you are interested if any become available in the future.  

We will not have any mature ewes available in 2016. 

*******************************************************************************************

EWE LAMBS

At this point most of the March 2016 ewe lamb crop is reserved. I may have a few more than anticipated and will take a few names for first right of refusal (no deposit necessary at this time) after I wean in early June.   
 
We will have a limited fall 2016 lamb crop and I will take names for a notification list for them when they are available after the first of the year (2017). 
 

****************************************************************************

$50 (rams) or $25 (ewes)/animal discount if sold without registration papers. 

Export to Canada: We are checking on our eligibility to export rams to Canada since the voluntary scrapie regulations recently changed. However, we cannot export ewes at this time (but may be able to in the near future once we are certified for export status under the new scrapie regulations). Additional permit and health certificate fees will apply. 

 

******************************************************************************************

Transportation: Buyers are responsible for their own transportation (or for making connections to final destination from locations listed below). However, we are willing to help with transportation when possible (additional fees apply). Possible 2016 transports may include:

                         *  NAILE, Louisville, KY (Nov)- TBD

                         *  Possible connections with other buyers from your area 

                               who can transport additional animals  

 

******************************************************************************************************************************

 

Exposed ewes are sold as "exposed to rams"

We prefer that you come to the farm to see our flock, learn about our management, and select the ram or ewe that fits your specific needs.  However, we realize this is not always possible and will try to work with you on finding transportation when available.  

 

 

No foot rot problems in the flock.  Sheep are current on CD&T vaccination and internal parasite control. 

We are enrolled in NSIP (and previously LAMBPLAN) and have cross-flock EBV's (expected breeding values) on all  animals. 

We are a Certified flock in the Voluntary Scrapie Flock Certification Program and are working towards Export Certification in the recently updated scrapie program.

Registration and transfer fee included in purchase price. Slight discount if animal is sold without registration papers. 

Veterinary inspection for out-of-state health certificates can be arranged at the buyer's expense.

Additional health testing can be arranged at the buyer's expense.

Transportation not included in sale price.

All breeding animals purchased from K Bar K Farm are guaranteed breeders, if managed and cared for properly.
