Stillmeadow  Finnsheep  Ewes
Our ewe flock represents a consistent effort to select highly maternal dams from the wide genetics we have introduced  since 1994. The need for repeated downsizing has enhanced our flock since only the top ewes have been retained.  We currently manage the flock for annual lambing in April and field turnout in May which allows lambs to achieve their growth from lush pasture grasses.  By supporting the ewes nutritionally we are rewarded with dams who have ample milk to feed litters of four.

This year, 2022, will be our last lambing season. My love for Finnsheep remains as strong as ever, but my advancing age ​has spoken.  The four sire rams have been sold, but their genetic strength will carry on in the lambs due this spring.​
In addition to the high productivity from our remaining Finn ewes, we immensely enjoy their temperaments.  As lambs they socialize easily and become extremely friendly and easy to handle.  By working toward specific goals we have also been able to improve wool as well as body strength.  Contact us for your opportunity to reserve lambs.

Dam - Stillmeadow 0944 Citrine, TR white
As a yearling with her first twin litter this ewe brought us much joy as we witnessed her instant maternal nature. She has a forever home with us especially since her lambs and her fleece are spectacular.  She raised triplets in 2018, 2019, & 2020, followed by quadruplets in 2021.  With a milking ability to raise quadruplets, Zinnia has indeed become one of our best ewes.
