Our 2011 registered Jacob lamb crop is about to “hit the ground”. Stay tuned here as wean our new lambs and put together our 2011 For Sale list. Folks have many reasons for their interest in Jacob sheep. They may wish to introduce new genes into their established flock or establish a new flock altogether. They may only want a couple of ewes to provide fleece for themselves and their friends. I know some want Jacobs as moving yard ornaments or automatic lawnmowers. Others have inquired about weaned lambs that they could raise for meat for their personal use. Whatever the need, we believe we will have the lambs to fill it. Many of our new lambs express the breed standard very well and would make great breeding stock. Others lack what we think is championship (or show) configuration desired by pure-bred breeders but appear to have great fleece. And conversely, I predict a couple will be magnificent to look at in the pasture but may not have the best fleece. Finally, we’ll have a couple of Blue-faced Leicester / Jacob crosses that result in more meat yield and will have a very interesting black fleece.


Contact us with your needs and we’ll see if we have an animal for you here at Drumcliffe, or we’d be happy to recommend another breeder.
