Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ram lamb $475
Well built red roan ram. We in the PNW have been lucky to borrow a ram from the USDA Research Station in Booneville, AR; Dr. Joan Burke is lending him to our region so that we can get better linkage to the “cluster” of flocks in the Midwest/South. He’s been on a tour through Idaho and Oregon, and made a stop here last winter to be used in my flock, and he’s headed East now. Take advantage of some great out-of-state genetics!
His dam traces back Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired), Aspen Mountain Farm (Aileen Scott, MT), and some KRK genetics (Karen Kenagy, OR). This guy is very strong in growth, milk and survival, more modest on prolifacy. He’ll produce good-growing butcher lambs and replacement ewes that have great milk and survival traits, but hopefully will be a little lower on the twin-triplet scale, for those who despise multi births. This ram is NSIP Stud Certified, due to his high growth and milk scores.
