Jacobs Lambs For Sale
We are proud of our 2022 Jacob lambs! We are also pleased with this year’s more normal 1:1 sex ratio, compared with last year’s ratio heavily skewed to ram lambs; this year we have available a good selection of both ewe lambs and ram lambs. All ewes and rams in our flock are registered with the Jacob Sheep Breeders Association (JSBA). Most lambs will be sold with their applications for JSBA registration.

We used six (that’s 6!) rams as sires of this year’s lambs, which provides good opportunities to assemble starter flocks of several ewe lambs and an unrelated ram lamb. (In an effort to downsize flock size we also offer for sale a number of good-quality adult ewes that may be included in a starter flock. Please click on the Adult Jacobs-Sale link to see photos of adult ewes offered for sale.) Sires of this year’s lambs include three rams of our breeding (Hillside Max (JSBA registration number: F016-20), Hillside Casey (F015-20), and Hillside Frankie (D131-21)), and three rams from other breeders of high-quality Jacobs (Morgan Farms Everett (A062-20), Unzicker Ardsley (D132-21), and Patchwork Gideon (D003-14)). Gideon was on loan from Peg Bostwick and Joe Bohr of Sweetgrass Jacobs.

Photos of ewe lambs are posted on the top half of the page; ram lamb photos are located at the bottom of the page. The legend under each photo includes dam and sire. Information on each parent may be found using the pedigree search on the JSBA website (JSBA.org). The legend may also describe the lamb as “lilac,” a genetic recessive that presents as brown (or gray) and white, instead of the dominant black and white. Fiber artists sometimes appreciate the added color options provided by a lilac fleece.

A few words are in order on purchase of ram lambs at a young age. Ram lambs, especially their horns and especially four-horned ram lamb, can change as they grow during their first few months of age. Ram lambs may not be JSBA-registered until they are at least 6 months old, and it can be difficult to select a ram lamb at a young age and know for certain that he will pass inspection for registration a few months later. The issue is less a concern if the ram will not be registered.

We have raised Jacob sheep for 30 years and will be glad to use our experience to advise and guide selection of lambs for purchase. Any with questions or expressions of interest my contact us via e-mail (gbanderson@ucdavis.edu) or by phone or text (616/514-9343).
