Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ram $550

A pretty snazzy, flashy chocolate roan ram with panda face markings, out of one of my newly purchased Missouri Birch Cove Farm rams. This ram’s mother, though normally a really good dam, had a mishap with her triplets this year, she couldn’t keep track of them and they were wandering all over. I was supplementing this guy in the field a little bit with the bottle to make sure he was getting enough, and he just decided he’d rather go that route, and quit trying to nurse off his dam. 🙂 I was busy, so gave up and let him be an orphan-rear. Mind you, he’s not technically a “bottle lamb” because I teach them to drink from a teat bucket right away. So though he’s acclimated to people from being in the barn, he’s not tame or friendly, so shouldn’t be a behavior problem later as an intact ram.

Dam’s pedigree has some hardy, old-school WA genetics (Bert Martineu, now retired) plus a White Post Farm ram from the East Coast (also now retired). The Birch Cove ram has a little bit of Texel a few generations back, as David has been crossing those in and upgrading back to gain benefits from hybrid vigor and the myostatin gene. I spent a lot of money and effort getting those rams shipped out West, so take advantage of my investment and use this gorgeous, high-indexing guy to improve your flock!

Offered for sale as a registered ram lamb, $475

A classic white ram with very strong EBVs across the board. He qualifies for both the NSIP Maternal Certified and Stud Certified status. This guy will throw great butcher lambs and very strong replacement daughters that push growth, prolificacy, survival and milk to new heights. This ram is out of one of my top ewes from Mary Bakko’s now-retired Misty River Farm flock, and he traces back to a bit of Iowa and Missouri genetics as well. One of my top picks from the 2019 crop of 141 lambs.

KMC 7045

Offered for sale as a proven, mature, registered Ram $450

This ram has sired some nice lambs over three years, it’s time for him to move to a new place. He has good growth, milk and survival scores, and moderate prolificacy, so his daughters may steer clear of triplets much of the time. He carries a pretty heavy coat in winter and retains a little bit of “pants” sometimes; and I’ve had a few shaggy lambs turn up (<5% of the crop), though it doesn’t matter to me since I can just run those through the butcher channel. Overall, this ram can cover a lot of ewes and should produce a lot of growthy lambs. He is quiet and easy to handle, and neutral to people (not tame or friendly, nor wild).
