Breeding Stock For Sale

August 29, 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

We are currently SOLD OUT of rams. Next expected sales list in April 2017. Please contact us to be put on the notification list. 

 

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 may be offering some rams from this F1 cross in early 2017. 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

We are currently SOLD OUT of ewe lambs.   
 
We will have a limited fall 2016 lamb crop and I will take names for a notification list for when they are available in early 2017. 
 

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

Registration papers: $50/animal discount if sold without registration papers (unless marked as 'commercial only', then no discount). Registration transfer is the responsibility of the buyer. 

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 2017 transports may include: 

                         *  MD Sheep and Wool Festival (early May)

                         *  Midwest Stud Ram Sale, Sedalia, MO (June)

                         *  NAILE, Louisville, KY (Nov)

                         *  Possible connections with other buyers from your area 

                               who can transport additional animals  

 

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

 

Exposed ewes are sold as "exposed to rams" 

(veterinary ultrasound can confirm pregnancy at buyer's expense).

Non-refundable deposits required to hold animals. Balance due in 30 days. Yardage fees may apply if animal(s) held greater than 30 days. 

Contact us for current sale list, more information, or to be put on notification lists when breeding stock become available.

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.

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

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

All breeding animals purchased from K Bar K Farm are guaranteed breeders, if managed and cared for properly, and if buyer contacts K Bar K in a timely manner when an issue occurs and works with us on a diagnosis and solution.
