  • *Sorting Ewes/Ewe Lambs as Breeding Stock:
         *We do not sell any ewes as breeding stock unless they are from a flock dispersal.
         *Ewe lambs (or yearlings) may be sold as breeding stock.
              -If you want your ewe lambs sold as breeding stock, they must be separated from your other sheep on the trailer
                or marked separate from the others when they arrive.
              -If they are not marked or separate, they will be sorted into feeder pens.
              -Note: If your ewe lambs are not of high size or quality, we caution you about trying to sell them as breeding stock,
                 they may bring less money than if they were sorted into larger feeder pens which the buyers prefer to buy from!
