Offered for sale as a purebred record-able Katahdin ram $450

Classic white ram with some brown freckling on his face. Really nice EBVs across the board, good growth, high prolificacy, survival and milk. This ram will produce both good replacement ewes and fast-growing butcher lambs. This lamb meets the criteria to be NSIP maternal certified.

He is out of my newly-purchased white ram from Birch Cove Farm in Missouri (David Coplen); which is a grass-based, minimal input system with a long history of NSIP data. Note that ram has some Texel in his background, and is an 87.5% recorded ram. He has not shed adequately this year, so I will not be upgrading him (yet). Thus his lambs will also be record-able and eligible for upgrade upon hair coat inspection (which I can do) next summer. This lamb’s coat looks like it should have no problem fully shedding next year. For me, this ram’s productivity scores outweigh the shedding drawback in the pedigree, but I have discounted his lambs accordingly. On the maternal side, this lamb captures some really nice genetics from Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa) which is another grass-based flock that’s long been active in NSIP; and also Aspen Mountain Farm (Aileen Scott, Montana).

White ram with a large, round brown spot on his neck (a throwback to Wiltshire Horn genetics!). Nice, short hair coat. Really nice EBVs across the board, good growth, high prolificacy and milk, and positive survival. This ram will produce both good replacement ewes and fast-growing butcher lambs. He meets the criteria for NSIP certified.

Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ram $500

Very dark mahogany ram with white flecks on his face, chest and sides, and lots of color in this pedigree. Strong growth, very high milk and survival, and moderate prolificacy scores. He is a good candidate for a terminal sire, or for those who prefer replacement ewes that tend way away from triplets, but still have strong milk and survival genes. Pedigree is a blend of local genetics, plus Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), KRK (Oregon), and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired). This ram looks a little small compared to the other lambs, and he is, but it’s because he was born late, and is 4-6 weeks younger than the rest. He is the highest indexing ram lamb born here this year, though, so is definitely a keeper!

Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ram $450

A very flashy bicolor ram, nice short hair coat. Very strong growth, good milk, but low on prolificacy. He is a good candidate for a terminal sire, or for those who prefer replacement ewes that tend way away from triplets. Pedigree is a good blend of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), KRK (Oregon), Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired), and Just Plain Sheep (Jody Ouradnik in Eastern WA). A strong North Dakota State U ram as a maternal grandsire as well. Pictured here with his dam, he was a single, so is pretty big and should be able to cover a lot of ewes this fall.

A pretty, tall, chocolate ram with dapple coloring over his face and legs. Very strong growth, prolificacy and milk, a little more modest on survival.

Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ram $450

This ram has pretty cute markings, he’s white and a baldface, but has a splash of brown spilled over his ears, shoulders and chest! Nice short hair coat. Very strong growth, milk and survival, and a little lower on prolificacy. He will make a great terminal sire or a father of replacement ewes for those who don’t like a lot of triplets. Pedigree si a good blend of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), KRK (Oregon), Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired), and Aspen Mountain Farm (Aileen Scott, Montana).
