Lambing for the 2022-2023 season is almost complete. So far, we have 30 healthy lambs on the ground with 100% survival. We have 3 or 4 more ewes left to lamb. Our late December lambs are already looking great and I can't wait to get 60 day weights in a few weeks!
We will send many ram lambs to UF Ram Test this May and we will keep many ewe lambs on the farm this season. As a result we will sell 8-10 experienced adult ewes around April-May, along with select ram and ewe lambs. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page and join our mailing list to see our sales list as soon as it is available. Prices will start at $400 and up depending on age and quality.

This is one of our rams that completed the UF Ram Test and is selected for the sale. His dam works hard - always stays in perfect body condition, has never needed to be dewormed, and always raises nicely growing twins and triplets. She is 4 years old and has weaned 8 lambs. His maternal granddam has weaned 14 lambs in 5 years.
His KHSI registration can be updated to 100% purebred with KHSI after passing haircoat inspection next summer.
