We have made the difficult decision to disperse our Jacob breeding flock after lambing in 2013 (with plans to retain a couple of ewes and hopes to rebuild a flock in the future).  "Reserved" means a deposit has been received; "On Hold" means a buyer has expressed an interest in purchasing the lamb. "Under consideration" means the lamb is available though another buyer is considering purchase dependent on lamb development.

Contact us to discuss purchasing of available lambs or if you have questions.

If you are interested in these adult ewes or lambs, please contact me at cathybro@uga.edu

The American Jacobs are an heirloom breed that has not undergone excessive out crossing to satisfy the commercial marketplace. Jacob sheep are small, black and white spotted, polycerate (multi-horned) sheep, having as many as six but commonly four horns. Both rams and ewes are easily kept and have a natural resistance to parasites and foot problems. Jacobs are usually raised for their wool, which is prized by handspinners, and for their healthy, lean meat.  As of 2009, the American Livestock Breed Conservancy has listed the American population of the Jacob as a “threatened breed" and a conservation priority.  The breed is estimated to have fewer than 1,000 annual registrations in the United States and a global population of less than 5,000.
