  • That varies quite a bit between producers, but we see the best results using a proven white face recipient ewe.    You want to use a ewe that you know will breed easily out of season, will cycle when you want to put those eggs into her, will be a good mother, and will milk well.  Ewes with bag problems, foot issues or other physical ailments are not good candidates.  Those fertilized embryos represent a lot of work and investment on your part, don’t short yourself on the quality of the recipient ewe you put them into.
  • Recipient does are much the same as ewes in that you want to use a doe that has been proven and who breeds out of season. Look for good mothering traits and one who milks well.
