KMC 18037

Offered for sale as a registered ram lamb $500

This is one of the top ram lambs born here this year. A very substantial, heavyweight ram.  His sire seems to be turning out to be a real nick- a leapfrog in genetics compared to his parents, his lamb crop has been phenomenal for growth.  Sire’s maternal line is from the now-retired Mist River genetics.  Dam is one of my top-performing ewes from Birch Cove farm in Missouri; she is a nice blend of NSIP genetics from the Midwest and South, and she comes with good parasite resistance scores. This ram will make a very productive herd sire that can throw a great combo of fast-growing butcher lambs and really valuable replacement ewes with good milk and prolificacy. It’s hard to “have it all” in one animal, this is one of the few!

KMC 18096

Offered for sale as a registered ram lamb $500

This is a really nice set of triplet ram lambs out of my only badger-colored ewe.  You can see how instinctively tight-knit they are, even at this age. This is how you get NLW in the double-digits, is dams that look after their triplets closely, and lambs that stick to their dams. 18096 is the middle ram in the photo. The sibling at left actually had a little better WWT, but this ram looks more substantial and masculine to me now at 90 days, and they are very close in scores. This pedigree brings in almost all non-PNW genetics, so this ram offers diverse genetics for our region.  He is an NSIP Maternal Certified ram, and is in the top 10% of the nation for growth scores, while still having very strong EBVs across the board, which is hard to get. Let this guy bring improved genetics for growth, prolifacy, survival and milk into your operation!  This is one of my top picks from this year’s lamb crop, this ram promises to be a really strong sire.

KMC 18076

Offered for sale as a registered ram lamb $500

This is a very standard white ram that promises to really improve your growth and milk genetics! Those WWT, PWWT and MWWT scores are in the top 1% of the nation. His prolificacy is more moderate, so his daughters are still likely to twin, but steer away from multiple births.

KMC 7046

Offered for sale as a registered yearling ram $450

A flashy pinto marked ram with panda face markings. Early shedder and really nice conformation. He has balanced and moderate EBVs, he’ll throw good-growing lambs and will have daughters that tend more towards single-twins than twin-triplets.  He is a nice-sized adult, and calm and easy to handle.

EBVs from 2018 lamb crop sixty day weights. Photo taken June 2018.

KMC5088 “Rugby”

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered, proven sire $550

Rugby has very  balanced EBVs that predict producing very standard Katahdin lambs that will grow well and be good producers themselves. His prolificacy scores are on the lower end, so his daughters will stay more in the single-twin range than the twin-triplet range.   What I love about him is that Holy Grail I’m seeking: fast growth to butcher weight, but then slowing down into maturity, so he did not turn out to be a huge adult. He is very calm and handle-able, he’s put together well and has that flashy coloration so many people value. He is out of a fantastic-scoring ewe from David Coplen’s Birch Cove farm in Missouri, a grass-fed system where heavy selection pressure is placed on easy care sheep; and from a long line of NSIP-focused breeding programs. His sire was from local genetics and he produced a lot of good-growing lambs for me.

EBVs from up-to-date from 2018 lamb crop sixty day weights. Pictured here breeding as an eighteen month old. Photos at the bottom of this post were taken in May/June 2018.
