Royal White® Sheep Association Producers of Genuine Hair Sheep
Note: Keep your last 1/3rd stage pregnant ewes, with enough energy (like some grain or hardcooked tubs w/molasses, protein and hay during this stage before lambing,make sure she has some iodine and selenium in minerals if needed in certain areas, Iodine is important in all geo areas at this stage. Keep pregnant ewe from lounging and laying around, they need excercise to develop lambing muscles, excercise is important less chances of bloat and prolapses. Good lambing.
The first new breed of sheep developed in the USA in over 25 years.
Royals are super fast growing lambs, with high survival rates.Cattle operators, dairies, goat producers, hog operators seeking to diversify, baby boomers, those looking for a hobby and some extra income, existing commercial sheep producers looking to improve their flocks in terms of less expense, less labor with more production. Ethnic buyers desire this lamb due to it's leanness and high carcass yields with low fat. The demand for high quality pure hair lambs is and has been high, these sheep possess high performance bundled traits, sorry, we don't allow upgrading from other sheep breeds for registration purposes, we see no need to dilute the traits or infuse unwanted traits in these high performance highly adaptable pure hair sheep. They ship well with low stress.
Make sure your pregnant ewes receive iodine during lactation periods, iodine salt or in minerals or feed. Also selenium if located in selenium deficient soil areas, mainly in the Northeast. Put a vitamin package in your feed, tubs etc, for growing lambs. Allow your lactating ewes with lambs to have access to energy, I used hard cook tubs 125# with protein, molasses and a vitamin package. Hard cooked only. You may want to place vertically versus flat on the ground, thus lambs can't jump in and mess up. Make sure you tighten down the container well with straps when placed vertically as the lambs can get killed if it drops down on them. Attach it to a fence post. Keep that tub clean on the top. Make sure they have adequate roughage and water available when they consume these tubs. Verify the tubs don't contain more than 20% PPM of copper in the material.
