Royal White® Sheep Association - Producers of Genuine Pure Hair Sheep
"Utah Alert" Beware of two individuals in Utah peddling sheep as Royal Whites, one is located in the American Fork area of Utah. I have received two calls from people who have complained about these individuals misrepresentations.
If your buying Royal White Hair Sheep as registered stock make sure your getting registration papers and find out where their stock originated from.
Note: It is advised to give pregnant ewes in latter stages of gestation, say 1/3rd to 1/4 stages left to lamb, some energy like corn etc., I preferred hot cooked molasses protein tubs with a vitamin package in it, make sure no more than 20 ppm copper in there. The tubs come in many sizes I used 125 lb for ease of handling and access. The ewes will go to these tubs when they need it, keep it out and available to them after they lamb as well, lett them hace access to roughage when they have access to these tubs. May want to turn it on edge when lambs get into it as they will crud them up, make sure you prop it up well as they can fall and kill or seriously injure your lambs.
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, 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. ....Keep your sheep safe from the weather elements,predators and well fed, plenty of fresh water for body warmth necessities this winter.
July 2013 The Royal White hair sheep continues to exceed demand vs supply, paricularly the ewes. Many breeders wanting o build up their flocks to of the Royals. These sheep are easy to manage.
Note: Good time to worm your sheep just before or at the first freeze; kill the larvae. Worm them after they lamb as well.
Royal White lambs, note the pure white pristine hair coat.
