Healthy High Performance Sheep for Sale

If you’ve worried about adding sheep to your flock because of the risk of disease and lack of performance then we have the animals for you.

Healthy Flock

We provide vaccinations and dewormings as needed to all of our sheep. In addition we are OPP free and Export Qualified in the Scrapie program.Full documentation of all treatments is provided to you, the buyer, so you know the status of your new sheep.

Proven Performance

Our sheep are recorded with the National Sheep Improvement Program for proven performance. 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. This proven system provides you with specific information on how the performance will vary between sheep for critical comercial characteristics. While we use the indices we can also provide the EBVS for any of the specific traits you are concerned with. These have been updated with the EBV run from July 2018.

Part of being a healthy flock is being able to breed over the long term. So we track how closely related our sheep are to each other. This will allow you to line breed or line cross as desired for your own flock goals. The cluster or bloodline data is based on the genetic analysis done by the USDA National Animal Germplasm Program in 2014. This analysis looked at the entire North American Black Welsh Population and determined how many different bloodlines or clusters exist and which animals are in which cluster.

All breeding sheep are guaranteed breeding sound.

Breed Standards

We also evaluate every animal on a number of characteristics for breed type and quality and give each animal an overall score each year. These scores can also be provided so you can select sheep according to your own criteria.

All breeding sheep will be registered with the American Black Welsh Mountain Sheep Association prior to sale.

All breeding rams will be registered with the UK Black Welsh Mountain Sheep Breeders’ Association as well.

Additional Fees

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.
