Purebred St. Croix Ram Lambs READY FOR YOUR FALL BREEDING.

St. Croix are a rare breed of hair sheep that are used primarily for meat. They are EARLY AND PROLIFIC BREEDERS.

OUR EXPERIENCE: We've had rams breed as young as four months. Ewe lambs can be bred at 7 months. Mature ewes easily produce twins or triplets without feeding grain.

St. Croix are known for their PARASITE RESISTANCE.

OUR EXPERIENCE with our purebred flock of St. Croix: we do NO routine worming and only evaluate if there is a potential problem. Since starting the flock in 2016, we've never had to use wormer for any of our breeders (even those producing triplets).

OUR EXPERIENCE running a commercial flock with Katahdin (hair sheep), St. Croix and Katahdin/St. Croix cross (Katahdin ewe with St. Croix ram):

17 Katahdin ewes: in two years 7 needed wormer 1 time
18 Katahdin/St. Croix cross ewes: in two years 3 needed wormer 1 time
2 St. Croix ewes: in two years they DIDN'T NEED ANY WORMER

We used the FAMACHA method of parasite detection for our commercial flock.

Other benefits of St. Croix: because they are hair sheep, they shed naturally. There's NO NEED FOR SHEARING. Traditionally the tail is left long, so NO NEED FOR TAIL DOCKING. St. Croix produce easily on grass and/or hay, so NO NEED FOR GRAIN. Because we don't dock tails or routinely feed grain there is NO NEED FOR CDT SHOTS.

These rams were born in April 2018. Price is $350 each which includes registration with St. Croix Hair Sheep International Association. If interested please email, text or call 517-214-7848.
