Adult Jacobs for Sale
Alas, after breeding and raising Jacob sheep for 30 years, 25 years of registering our Jacobs with the Jacob Sheep Breeders Association (JSBA), and having added more than 400 Hillside Jacobs to the JSBA database of registered sheep, the time has come to downsize the number of ewes in our flock. Consequently, we offer for sale a selection of adult ewes that otherwise would remain in our flock for years to come. These ewes are not culls; they are excellent-quality, healthy, fertile ewes, some as young as 2 years old. Photos of the ewes are shown below. Their JSBA registration numbers are in parenthesis and include ewes from the B through G generations of JSBA registration, significantly more toward the latter than the former. Additional information including parentage is available by using the pedigree search on the JSBA website (JSBA.org). Please do not hesitate to contact us about prices on individual ewes; the same economical pricing we have used for 30 years will apply to these ewes. Sales will include transfer of ownership with JSBA.
Fleece quality has been an important selection criterion in our breeding program, and we believe our ewes will fit into any fiber flock.
Ewes will be available after weaning in July. Arrangements may be made for us to hold the ewes until December to be picked up as bred ewes. For biosecurity we prefer not to have ewes picked up now and returned for breeding in the fall. Contact is best done via e-mail (email@example.com), but text and telephone are options also (616/514-9343). We look forward to answering your questions.
