Spring Creek Border Leicesters

 
 

Our pasture based, NSIP enrolled flock is carefully managed for carcass quality as well as premium fiber, and Spring Creek ewes have been selected for easy lambing and excellent mothering for more than 30 years. All animals trace back to legendary Canadian bloodlines, non black-factored.


The closed ewe flock obtained Certified status in USDA’s voluntary scrapie program in 2001 and will soon be Export Certified. No foot rot or CL; OPP test-negative since 1997; all animals genotyped for scrapie susceptibility/resistance and those offered for sale carry at least one "R" at codon 171 (flock is "AA" at codon 136). TMEM154 diplotype (OPPV susceptibility) also available for all rams.


Lambs are born in May and offered first come-first choice based on date of inquiry; no deposit required to be placed on our wait list. While all available 2014 lambs have been sold, we’d be happy to place your name on our wait list for 2015, or for any adults that may become available.
