Shear Perfection Ranch Pricing

The California Red Sheep rebuilding program at Shear Perfection Ranch presents some real challenges in pricing our stock.  In order to offset the costs of implementing this program we have come up with two different pricing formulas; one for original California Red Sheep bloodlines and one for new foundation line CA Red Sheep. In this way, those benefitting from the new bloodlines are paying some of the cost burden to produce these new bloodlines.

Starter herds consisting of 5 or more of any combination of original or new foundation line California Red Sheep qualify for a 10% discount.

 

Why are new foundation line California Red Sheep so much more expensive than original bloodline California Red Sheep?

 

It takes a minimum of 2-1/2 years to breed animals eligible to qualify as new foundation lines for the California Red Sheep Registry.  We anticipate that in the first group of new foundation crosses with the appropriate percentages to be considered for California Red Sheep new foundation stock, 50% of the offspring will be badgerface and therefore will not be eligible for registration.  At this time Barbados Blackbelly and Tunis breeding stock sell for more than the average California Red Sheep.  In order to maintain a viable new foundation program breeders participating will need to change Barbados Blackbelly and Tunis bloodlines every two to three years.  We are predicting average expenses of $25,000 per year to develop a satisfactory program. 

We have had many breeders tell us they cannot afford to participate in the rebuilding program.  Believe me, we understand and we can’t either.  That is why we have fashioned a plan whereby everyone can participate at whatever level of comfort they prefer.  We have even drawn up an option for those who don’t want or are not in the position to raise sheep, but would like to be involved in saving the California Red Sheep Breed.
