We just weaned our lambs that were born here on the farm last spring. It's a nice-looking crew of 10! Wanna buy any?
Here are the details:
I think there are four ladies in this bunch...or maybe there are five...I could check if you need me to. The rest are castrated males.
Their mothers are mixed breeds, mostly Icelandic but also some smidges of Katahdin, Navajo and some type of mystery breed. The moms weigh between 60 and 80 pounds.
Their father, Sir Charles, is a fancy-pants registered Suffolk ram (he even has papers!). He weighs about 175 pounds.
All of them were born in late March/early April. They have spent their entire lives with their moms out to pasture.
Because they have had very little contact with humans, they are wild as hell right now, but would probably calm down and be your friend in a month or two.
The girls would make nice ewes for breeding, the boys will make fine eating.
According to my estimates they all weigh about 60 to 70 pounds. They probably will get a bit bigger in the next few months.
Castrated Males: $60.00
Are you a lamb-eating person?
This is a good deal if you are. If you were to buy a male and then take him to be butchered (Woodville charges a flat fee of $90.00 for lambs) then the whole deal would cost you $150.00. You would get at least 20 pounds of meat back...maybe more. So that adds up to about $7.50 per pound...quite a deal when you see lamb in the stores for like $12.00 per pound!
Why am I selling them?
I sell all my boy lambs every year. I don't need any more ladies at this time.
How you would buy one or some:
We live very near Connorsville, WI. Call (715) 643-2803 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for pick-up or viewing. I'll help you load, they are currently penned up in the barn and so will be easy to see and catch. They would ride nicely in the back of a pick-up with a topper.
