Our sheep are recorded with the National Sheep Improvement Program. The 2 indices I find most useful are the USA Maternal and the Self Replacing Carcass. The second one is closest to the Welsh index used in the UK for evaluating and recording EBVs for Welsh Mountain Sheep. The cluster data is based on the genetic analysis done by the USDA National Animal Germplasm Program in 2014. The analysis looked at the entire North American Black Welsh Population and determined how many different bloodlines or clusters we have and which animals are in which cluster. We also evaluate every animal on a number of characteristics for breed type and quality and give each animal an overall score each year.
Buyer pays all transportation fees and veterinary fees for health certificates and any additional testing required for transport to your location. We pay all transfer fees for registrations. All are guaranteed breeding sound. All sheep will be registered with both the American Black Welsh Mountain Sheep Association prior to sale. All rams will be registered with the UK Black Welsh Mountain Sheep Breeders’ Association as well.
We are offering the following sheep. Data is in the form Price, Name, Birthdate, Codon 171, USA Maternal Index, Self Replacing Carcass Index, Birth Type, Sire, Dam, Bloodline.
