Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able  Katahdin ram lamb $375

Classic white ram lamb with some black spotting. Positive growth, andstrong on prolificacy, survival and milk; this is a “maternal ram” built to produce replacement ewes. He is on the small side due to being a triplet, but his scrotal circumference is pretty decent, indicating early maturity genes. So I think he’ll be able to service a small group of ewes just fine.

This ram’s sire is a very strong ram from David Coplen (Birch Cove Farm, Missouri). This sire has a Texel thee generations back. David’s crossing-in benefits us with heterosis and the double-muscling gene from Texels. The tradeoff is some setback in shedding, but this is easily recovered from in subsequent generations.  His sire is an upgrade, a B coat, but most of his offspring are good shedders; and this ram lamb can be fully registered.  His maternal line traces back to KRK genetics plus more Birch Cove.
