Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ram lamb, $550
This is a very standard white ram with some brown dots and a pale eye patch. But his EBVs are Through. The. Roof. ! Killer growth, prolificacy, survival and milk, all while holding birth weight low. This is the best ram out of this year’s crop and on par with my best breeding stock, don’t let him get away! He will take your replacement ewes to the next level, I have no doubt you will see a witness-able jump in progress from these genetics. Pedigree traces back to Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri), KRK (Karen Kenagy, Oregon) 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. The ewe WAI1550 in this pedigree was a somewhat accidental acquisition and she is not a looker; but has emerged to be quite a ringer in her EBVs and the ram lambs she’s produced, several of which have gone out of state.
Photo taken July 2022. EBVs from EPWWT data. He has been NSIP genotyped. This ram is both NSIP Maternal and Stud Certified. He is ready to go to a new home and start breeding today. I used him some for breeding fall of 2022, so he’ll have some data in the system next year.
