Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ram lamb, $500
Light chocolate ram with a brockle face. Stellar EBVs across the board and especial strength on milk. Pedigree traces back to Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri), KRK (Karen Kenagy, Oregon) and Thistle Grove Farm (Dr. John Bare DVM, Iowa) genetics. Sire is from Birch Cove, he is one of the highest EBV rams in the country right now, with strong, proven data behind him. We are lucky to have him here on the west coast and he’s going to be an influencer for some time to come. This ram is both NSIP Maternal and Stud Certified.
Photo taken July 2022. EBVs from EPWWT data. This ram lamb is ready to go to a new home and start breeding today. Due to an error in sorting, he actually got his chance early here, and bred a bunch of ewes in the Sept/Oct timeframe (I mean, a LOT of ewes- way more than the textbooks say a 5-month old ram should be able to accomplish…). Not an unhappy accident since he’s such a good ram, but was not according to my timing or plan! So he will be in good company as far as having a lot of data in the system next year.
