It has been an extremely difficult decision but we are liquidating our entire sheep flocks of Texels and Katahdins and all of our sheep equipment due to David’s recent and unexpected heart bypass surgery. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing or have questions. (Asking prices are included for each item immediately following its description below.)
We will consider any and all offers on livestock and equipment.
Our flock has tested negative for Johne’s disease, OPP, and CL. We have sold quality breeding stock for a number of years and have a very comprehensive vaccinating program to help prevent disease as follows:
- Mannheimia Haemolytica-Pasteurella Multocida Bacterin
- Clostridium Perfringes Type A Toxoid
If you see a ram or some ewes that you are interested in, but you need assistance with transporting them to your farm please contact us. We have worked with a Virginia based contract hauler who does livestock transportation on a daily basis and we will be happy to provide you with his cell number so that you may text him to get a no-obligation quote. He has hauled sheep for us from other states as well as done hauling for seedstock customers of ours. He does a great job and is reasonably and competitively priced.

Please click on photo below to visit Te Pari Products, Inc.’s website for more information about this product https://us.tepari.com/products/animal-management/scales-indicators/
6″ x 88″ Alloy Weighing Platform is a lightweight, easy-to-use platform that is ideal for routine sheep and cattle weighing. The integrated load cells eliminate the need for a seperate set of load bars & provides superior protection for the load cells & cables. The Te Pari T20 indicator completes the weighing system. Scale capacity of 6600 lbs. and platform weighs 88 lbs.
We especially like this Te Pari scale platform and T20 scale indicator because it is self-contained, easy to carry, and fits nicely within the 8′ panels of our sheep working chute. We also take it out as needed and weigh cattle with it too. We specifically chose the T20 Scale Indicator over the T10 so that we could possibly switch to Shearwell EID ear tags in the future and be able scan and weigh sheep more effortlessly.
Asking $2,400 for this complete set up that we purchased new on 1-4-2018.

Bumper pull 6′ 8″ x 16′ long Alum-Line Showmaster Livestock Trailer (14′ + 2′ v-nose). Photos below (without pickup truck) were taken on 2-3-2020. This trailer is like-new and ready to put to use. It has approximately 5.000 miles on this trailer.
We opted to not have a center divider (cut) gate installed in this trailer for versatility and the wire filled gate shown inside the trailer is included with the sale of this Alum-Line trailer so that you can haul rams separately from ewes, etc. The lambing pen (claiming pen) shown in the inside photo is NOT included in the sale of this trailer.

LOT 9 – TEN (10) 8′ SINGLE-SIDED SHEEP AND GOAT FEEDERS BUILT BASED ON PREMIER1’s FEEDER PLANS
Here are the specs on this trough from Premier1’s website https://www.premier1supplies.com/img/instruction/127.pdf
We used welded 4″x 4″ goat panel to make the part where the sheep and goats eat hay through. Each of these panels is welded at the joints to help them be more sturdy and last longer. We have found that these feeders work great as fenceline feeders for sheep and goats. However, they need to be under roof in a row to be protected from the elements. These feeders work well for feeding both grain and hay or both at the same time.
Asking $150 EACH for these TEN (10) 8′ Goat and Sheep Feed troughs.
LOT 12 – TWO (2) KETCHAM HAY FEEDERS RC108 6 1/2′ x 8 1/2′ Bale Feeder
Here is a link below to the specs on these hay feeders from Ketcham’s website. (Please keep in mind that the prices shown in their catalog DO NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING and that is a big part of the cost associated normally with purchasing these due to their size and weight. They will be happy to provide you with a quote on shipping if you are trying to compare costs with purchasing these from our farm.) Shipping when we purchased 3 of these feeders at one time cost us over $300.00 so that’s why we have priced these feeders as we have. Thank you to those folks who have asked us this very question.
We have used these feeders since the fall of 2018 and they do an excellent job of feeding either large round bales or 3′ x 3′ x 7′ large square bales. They help save hay and we’ve never had an issue with mature sheep or lambs getting hung up in these feeders.
Asking $500 EACH for these TWO (2) KETCHAM HAY FEEDERS

LOT 15 – MOBILE CHICKEN HOUSE FOR FREE-RANGE LAYING HENS INCLUDING ALL EQUIPMENT INSIDE (SEE DESCRIPTION BELOW)
This mobile chicken house for free-range laying hens was custom built onto a hay wagon body and chassis. It was custom built by a commercial contractor and is extremely well built. It is easy to hook to quickly with a pickup and move to a new location within the pasture so we tend to move it more often than our prior mobile chicken house that was harder to hook up and move.
This mobile chicken house has an expanded metal (slatted floor) for easier cleaning. Included are three (3) roll-out nests made by Best Nest Boxes so that your eggs roll away from the hens after they lay them. This helps keep eggs cleaner and there are less cracked and damaged eggs than with traditional nests. Each nest comes with an extra washable nest pad (that’s made out of astro-turf) so that you always have clean nest pads to swap out as needed. Also included are two (2) 40 lb. hanging feeders and four (4) water buckets. Recently added and included is an automatic solar powered chicken door that you can set your desired time for it to open each day and close each night. This is the model door: Standard Pullet-Shut Chicken Door Solar/Battery/Photo Combination and it can be viewed on the company’s website at (please click the link below)
Also included is a spare wheel and tire in case you should get a flat tire plus the metal trash can (pictured above – inside) to store spare bags of chicken feed.
The approximate outside dimensions are:
Length of coop: 241″ (not including hitch)
Width of coop: 111.5″
Height of coop: 144″ (from ground to the highest peak of roof)
Length of hitch: 84″
Wheel base: 90″ (outside measurement from outside edge of tire to opposite outside edge of opposite tire)
Asking $4,250 for the entire package above (laying hens available separately – see LOT # 16 below)
LOT 16 – 65 FREE-RANGE LAYING HENS – ACTIVELY LAYING NOW

Asking $10.00 each for these laying hens above
LOT 19 – (SOLD – PENDING PICK UP) – SQUARE BALES OF STRAW

LOT 22 – TARTER HEAVY DUTY BUNK FEEDER WITH HAY RACK ATTACHED
Specs on this feeder may be found at Tarter website at https://tarterusa.com/tarter-products/5-or-10-1-piece-poly-heavy-duty-bunk-feeder
We had someone modify this hay rack to add/weld rods between each existing rod to make the spacing closer today. This hay rack was originally designed to feed horses hay but we modified it so that mature sheep and goats could each hay out of the top rack and grain out of the bottom bunk without there being a large amount of wasted hay. We also found that this feeder worked well for our son’s show heifer.
This feeder needs a couple of long bolts replaced to attach one end of the hay rack to this bunk.
Asking $400 for this Tarter 10′ bunk feeder with attached hay rack
