A buyer backed out so these 5 ewe lambs from our yearlings are for sale. Their weekly weights through the end of March are shown below. They were put on pasture in early June and we haven’t weighed them since then. They are out of our Richard Ehrhardt ram that is about 46% Dorset, 33% Finn, 19% Ile de France, with a hint of Rambouillet. About 28% of Finn genetics and 38% of Dorset genetics originate from Cornell. They would make great foundation or replacement breeding stock. Our flock is free of footrot, OPP, and soremouth. We haven’t seen a case of CLA in the past year. Johne’s Disease hasn’t been seen in our flock in years (there is no effective way to prove we don’t have it). Price is $200 each at the Cornell Teaching Barn. If interested, please send a message to Jessica Waltemyer jrk272@cornell.edu.
