Dispersal of Crystal Spring Katahdins
Due to a sudden change in health within the family we must disperse our beloved flock of Katahidins. We are offering 52 breeding ewes, 12 outstanding ewes lambs, 3 yearlings rams and 8 ram lambs. The flock has been managed for high production on a forage based system--our sheep have not been fed grain in now over 4 years. We have used rotational grazing ans high quality stored forage mainly provided as round bale silage. We have also focused on selecting for resistance to infection by the barber pole worm (Haemonhus contortus). the flock has been managed for the last 10 years jointly by Seth Kroeck and Tom Settlemire. The dispersal is only taking place to allow more focus on family health.

The flock is based on ram genetics from Lee and Cindy Wright, Virginia ( Ram WRI 8117), Kay Cloyd, Kentucky (ram BGK 0647), Carl Ginapp, Iowa (rams CMG 9072 and 9414) and David Maddock, Georgia ( ram WSK 4236), The web site listed below describes our selection process and our unique "ewe score card program" we have used since the flock was established.

All of the sheep have been carefully evaluated for sound udders, feet and general good health. Prices start at $400 with discounts for purchasing multiple animals -- preference will be given to those buying multiple animals ---we prefer to sell as many as possible to one or two breeders.

The animals are ready for your inspection.
