What to know when interested in purchasing a Full-Blood Valais Blacknose Sheep.

What is the cost?

The answer is...it depends. We price our Valais on their quality and genetics. We never quote a price until our lambs are on the ground, deemed healthy and then evaluated. This means the prices will vary. A full-blood ram can range from $9,000 to $20,000 and a full-blood ewe from $12,000 to $25,000. Over time we would expect these prices to go down. 

What determines the cost?

We evaluate the lamb based on its markings, quality of wool, solid structure and genetic qualities. Each animal will be evaluated based on those key factors and then priced accordingly. We're happy to explain our evaluation for each lamb and how we determined its price.

Are they high maintenance?

We have over 50 years of experience with livestock and yes, we consider this breed high maintenance.  The Valais are relatively new to the U.S. and we're still learning about the care and maintenance. I think we can all agree the Winter in Minnesota is vastly different from the Winter in Florida. There are adjustments to make even within the U.S. when learning the care of the Valais. As breeders figure things out and share information we believe the care will become easier.

How do I get on the waitlist?

You'll know when our lambs will be available to purchase by filling out the contact form. We don't take deposits because we simply don't believe in taking someone's money until we know we have a healthy Valais to offer.   The  best way to be on the top of the list is to reach out and call Fred. Have a serious conversation and  ask questions to make sure we have what you want. The best time to get in touch with Fred is after 3 p.m. during the week and any time on the weekend at 330-842-2281.
