Several pens of ewes will be offered. They are pictured at left, still on pasture. They have been screened and tested, and will be brought off pasture shortly before the sale. These ewes have spent their lives on pasture, and come from our keeper ewe group. While they may not look like show ewes, they are highly productive, excellent doers and will produce the type of sheep that will grow and thrive on grass.

EWES
We will also be selling two yearling White Dorper ewes and two pens of three registered purebred ewes at Sedalia. Information on these ewes will be available at the sale or contact us for pedigrees and photos.

Sheep For Sale - Rams:

Our main focus is selling quality White Dorper rams for registered and commercial flocks.

We seldom sell rams until they are yearlings because we need to enter their growth and muscle scan data on Lambplan during their first year. Also lambs can change and it’s much easier for buyers to evaluate rams after they are a year old. Not every ram lamb is sire material and we cull ram lambs heavily assuring only the best were kept for sires.

Our 2011 rams are growing out well and we’ll have a good selection of bloodlines for sale. Carcass scanning on these rams has resulted in some very favorable loin eye EBVs. We use a certified LambPlan scanner.

We believe in providing access to our LambPlan performance records on rams for those interested. To see data on all our 2011 rams click here. From the search page on the upper left for BREED select White Dorper. For YEAR OF BIRTH select 2011; for SEX select Male. On right side of page go to STUD NAME/FLOCK type in 470LWD. Go to bottom of the page and click on SEARCH.

This list includes all our 2011 rams so be aware these have been culled down to 55 head. The $SRC Index value is located on the right side. Darker blue shading on the $SRC index indicates the top 10% of all Australian terminal breeds. Click on rams’ number to see pedigree information.

More information on individual sale rams will be available in May. All sale rams will be tested and negative for dermatosparaxis.

We can provide transportation for a limited number of our commercial rams to the Midwest Sale in Sedalia, MO without cost. Contact us for details and ram prices.

Sheep For Sale - Ewes:

We also sell groups of ewe lambs. If available these are sold off the ranch in late summer and fall. If you are interested in commercial ewe lambs contact us early for availability. Also registered ewes and sometimes ewe lambs are sold in sales. Information on sale ewes will be provided in May or early June.
