Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ram $425

Big, blocky chocolate ram with black penciling, nice slick hair coat. Good growth numbers, positive on prolificacy, good survival, and a little low on milk. He would make a good terminal sire, and will throw replacement ewes that have fewer triplets and milk complexity, for those who have hands-off flocks. This is a big, single ram that has already hit my target butcher weight as a 4-month-old, so he should be able to cover a lot of ewes in the fall. You can see in the photo he’s nearly as big as his dam.

He is out of my newly-purchased chocolate ram from Birch Cove Farm in Missouri (David Coplen); which is a grass-based, minimal input system with a long history of NSIP data. On the maternal side, he’s got a lot of my most reliable old ewes, and some other local genetis.

Photo taken Aug 2020.  EBVs from 2020 lamb crop WWT data. This ram will be weaned and ready to go to a new home late August.

    Hi Michelle This boy would work for me. Onlyone problem, I cannot pickup until august is over. The ferry problem is extreme…and we have a hard time making it back on island, my hope, after September begins, we can get reservations due to tourists leaving. If this does not work, let me know. Thanks steven
