I have thought about it, however ewes are only going for sale for $50-60/head and the closest auction/sale barn is 2.5hrs away. I don't really think it would be worth it. They also only have auction on monday while im at work so I would lose money there too. There is a second auction almost the same distance that has auctions on wednesday but again it is while im at work.Maybe you need to take 294 to the sale barn and let her go.
I am also wondering myself. Our suffolk hold back runt from last year(almost 12 months old) is pretty much the same size as Duke(13 weeks). Duke is half suffolk half polypay. That said the suffolk ram lamb we sold was almost the same size as the runt as well so maybe not the best to compare it too. I do know the straight mutt babies are smaller, Both the bottle boy and the white girl are the same size, and look like teddy bears. Anyhow we might get another large bred to cross with...thats a decision for later though.We are finding that our high dollar registered animals aren't performing nearly as well as our mutts so we are rethinking our long range plans.
