Offered for sale as a proven, purebred, registered Katahdin ram $475

I bought two rams from Caleb Pirc in 2021, and have since gotten too many rams, so I’m letting one of them go! This is a nicely put together ram that holds condition well, and he is gentle and curious. He is not super strong on growth, and his NLB is average; but his milk score is very high, and survival is pretty good. He also has fairly strong parasite resistance scores compared to most of my flock- I don’t usually report them because I don’t do FECs on my own stock. But Caleb did, so this guy’s scores are more accurate. I used him for breeding in fall of 2021 and he is a proven sire and a good breeder, and threw some nice lambs.

Pedigree traces back to Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri), Fahrmeier Katahdins (Missouri), KRK (Karen Kenagy, Oregon) and some other local genetics, plus a ram Caleb bought from me in 2018. He brings some nice out-of state genetics and diversity to the PNW. As you can see from the photo, he didn’t fully shed last summer, but I think next year he will.  You can see the clean shiny coat underneath, this was just some clingy soft lamb wool that stuck around, but it’s a very thin layer.

Photo taken August 2022. EBVs from 2022 PWWT data lamb crop data. He has been NSIP genotyped and he is NSIP Maternal Certified. He is ready to go to a new home and start breeding today.
