Marksman Sheep Marking Paste
Our shepherd’s preferred marking compound for the breeding season. This premixed sheep and goat raddle leaves long lasting and unmistakable marks on ewes.
Applies easily to the ram or buck's brisket without the hassle of premixing. Makes touching up on the go a quick task.
Several customers have indicated recent batches of blue and green paste seem to be more liquid than before. Our supplier suggests leaving the lid off of the paste to firm it up. Mixing in Raddle Powder may also produce the desired result.
We will continue to push for improvements to this product. —Premier

We like using this marking paste better than even the harness and crayon set up - no worries about harness rubbing or irritation on the rams/bucks, no need to worry about straps becoming loose, and the marks even stay longer than that of the crayons (from our experience). Crayons seemed to wear off/fade within 2-3 weeks after exposure to males. For best results we recommend reapplying Flockmaster once every 4-5 days (depending on how many animals are being bred). We apply a heavy first layer, and that usually lasts just the right amount of time.
The consistency of the product is very smooth and easy to apply. Customers should definitely be mindful when applying that it will stain clothing and the smell of it will remain in clothes for some time.
One thing that I have noticed is the orange and red color are very similar and can be difficult to distinguish. Orange turned out to be more of a burnt color, resembling red. While the blue and green also appear to be similar, the green has more of a teal tint to it, making it stand out from the blue.

I was shocked at how well this worked! I normally use the crayons and harnesses changing the crayons every 7 days for the breeding season, but this year I used a total of 9 rams in single sire breeding groups and I dIsn’t want to buy that many crayons so I used this instead and boy I was impressed with how long the marks lasted on the ewes as well as how long the rams were able to mark with one application! Highly recommend this for any breeding system, no need for harnesses and the tub goes a lot farther than the price equivalent in crayons!

We had a tiny Nigerian Dwarf buck who was a baby about wearing the harness we got him. This was a perfect solution, he is much happier and it seems to be working. Came in just one day after I ordered so that was extra amazing!!!

I really like this marking paste. It is easy to apply and lasts 2 days on sheep, only a day on goats.
