Too many sheep!
Our prolific Coopworths have created a dilemma for us…too many nice ewes that I really do not want to sell for meat!
Our regular price for registered Coopworth lambs is $200-$300 each, Adults; $300-$400.
We are selling 7 registered yearlings, white and natural colored, at the reduced price of $200-$250 each.
Registered ewe lambs are $175 each or $150 each without registration papers, mostly white but some natural colored.
We will give an additional 10% discount if you purchase 3 or more sheep.

We specialize in hardy, easy-care sheep with beautiful, prizewinning handspinning fleeces. We have utilized New Zealand AI genetics in our flock, along with the best domestic Coops available.
Because we are serious about the Coopworth emphasis on production we use production records to help discern the sheep with the traits that we feel are important in our flock; fleece weight and quality, easy care ewes with strong maternal instincts, structural soundness, and lamb weight gains
on pasture. We strive to make each generation of Deer Run Coopworths better than the last. We have the records, and will gladly show them to you, and assist you in recording the profitable traits in your flock!
We guarantee the health and fertility of our sheep. We are enrolled in the Voluntary Scrapie Free Flock Certification Program and our flock has tested negative for OPP.

Sire Photos - rams we have used in our breeding program.
Hidden Valley Titus
Introducing our newest ram, Hidden Valley Titus! Titus is a yearling ram from Wisconsin with New Zealand and Australia bloodlines. We will be using him on a few ewes this year, and will probably have some sons and daughters for sale in 2014.
Deer Run Whitman
Wild n Woolly bloodlines going back to the John May importations from New Zealand.
Silver Creek Carli
Born 12-27-06, Carli ranked #3 out of 250 ram lambs based on 30, 60, and 120 day weights, wool weights, and consideration for birth ranking and overall structure and wool quality. As a yearling in 2008, Carli won Reserve Champion in the All Other Breeds Wool Division at the Oregon State Fair. We purchased Carli in May '09 from Silver Creek Lambscapes.
Hatchtown 0029-02 "Hatch" from Maine, Hatch sheared 13.5 lbs. of wool as a 3 year old. Hatch has Woodsedge, Hidden Valley and Cobun Creek bloodlines. We liked the lambs that we got from this silver/blue ram so much that along with French Hill Baritone, he formed the foundation of our natural colored flock!
French Hill Baritone
Hidden Valley and Cobun Creek bloodlines. His daughters are very productive ewes with lovely wool!
In the past we have shipped sheep to New York, Vermont, Iowa, Michigan and Texas. If you are interested in our sheep, but are too far away to visit, we may be able to arrange transport at reasonable prices.

Some Ewe Photos
Deer Run Aretha, a "Hatch" daughter, had twins at 13 months, sheared 13.4 lbs of beautiful wool that year.
Her lambing record is 2,2,2,2,2,3,1,3. Trips at 8 years!
Octavia, a "Baritone" daughter, lambing record 2,2,3,2,2,2,2. She has been in the top 3 of the "pounds of lamb weaned" category on our farm for several years. She also has a beautiful fleece! She is the dam of Oscar and Carlson, 2 of our current rams. Her daughter Aria won second place fleece at the MD Sheep and Wool festival in 2012- while growing twins!
Deer Run Deidre, a "Hatch" daughter, lovely fleece, wonderful mom, lambing record 1,2,3.
Bluefaced Leicester X Coopworth lambs We tried some purebred BFL sheep about 12 years ago, but sold the breed a few years later because they just couldn't compete with the Coopworths for ease of care. We did keep one pet 3/4 BFL ewe and sometimes have a few BFL X Coop lambs for sale.
Ram temperment is very important to us!
