Offered for sale as a proven, registered herd sire $550
Meaty red ram with a baldface and white socks. Really clean, early shedder, AA-type coat. Mellow, easy to handle ram, ignores people and moves easily with dogs. I’ve used this ram for two seasons and he’s had really nice progeny. I’d keep him longer, but I bought two new rams from David Coplen in Missouri, so it’s time to let some of my existing rams go; and I have a lot of these genetics in my ewe base already. Good solid growth and milk scores, moderate on prolifacy; this ram would be a great terminal sire, or for improving a flock’s growth genetics. His pedigree is a nice blend of Thistle Grove Farm (Iowa), Misty Oaks Farm (Ohio), and the now-retired John Stromquist’s White Post Farm on the East Coast; so he brings some good out-crossed diversity to the PNW.
