Offered for sale as a 50% record-able Katahdin ram lamb $375

Chunky ram lamb with red dot markings. He is the result of an accidental breeding last August, so any of my sixty-some ram lambs here at that time would have been candidate sires. He is purebred, but only recordable at 50%. The fact that he is a myostatin gene carrier hints that he’s got BC H 973 in his sire’s background somewhere (not his direct sire, but perhaps grandsire or great grandsire). Maternal grandsire was a ram we West Coasters got to borrow from the USDA Research Station in Booneville, AR, so that brings some fresh genetics to the PNW.

EBVs from 2024 lamb crop birth data. (EBVs are lower than expected because the sire component averaged in has zeroes.) Photo taken May 2024. He will be weaned early June and ready to go to a new home and start breeding this summer/fall!
