Offered for sale as a purebred, record-able  Katahdin ram lamb $550

Beefy red ram with brockle face and white markings. Really strong EBVs across the board, I think this is the best ram born here this year, he should produce knockout grower lambs as well as strong replacement ewes. His dam is a mix of local genetics, she came here by way of someone getting out of Katahdins and was a lucky acquisition for me, as her EBVs have been climbing as more of her lamb crop data enters the system. This ram is NSIP Maternal Certified.

This ram’s sire is a very strong ram from David Coplen (Birch Cove Farm, Missouri). This sire has a Texel thee generations back. David’s crossing-in benefits us with heterosis and the double-muscling gene from Texels. The tradeoff is some setback in shedding, but this is easily recovered from in subsequent generations. Thus, I haven’t upgrade the sire yet (maybe this year if he sheds adequately, or maybe never); and this lamb will be recorded, and can be upgraded next year to 100% purebred upon hair coat inspection.

Photo from June 2021.   EBVs from 2021 WWT data. This will be weaned in August and ready to breed this fall.

Offered for sale as a purebred, record-able  Katahdin ram lamb $500

Classic white ram. Dam traces back to Thistle Grove Farm (Dr. John Bare, DVM, Iowa), Misty Oaks Farm (Kathy Bielek, OH), Aspen Mountain Farm (Aileen Scott, MT) and some local On The Lamb Farm (Sara-Joh Gahm, Arlington, WA). Sire is a very framey and strong NSIP ram from Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, MO). This guy is very strong across the board, on growth, prolificacy and milk; he’ll throw great butcher lambs and strong replacement ewes.¬† Note his sire is 87.5% recorded (due to tracing back to a Texel cross 4 generations ago) and I have not yet upgraded him because he didn’t shed adequately as a yearling. He may shed this year, thus freeing his offspring up to be 100% registered automatically. But if not, this ram lamb will need a hair coat inspection next year (which I can do, I’m a certified inspector) to be fully upgraded. Until then, he is record-able.

Photo from June 2021.   EBVs from 2021 WWT data. This ram is register-able and will be weaned in late August and ready to breed this fall.

Offered for sale as a purebred  Katahdin ram lamb $375

Dark chocolate ram with a small star. Sired by a framey, dark chocolate ram from Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri). Dam traces to KRK and Morgan Ensor’s line,. He’s got balanced EBVs that are on the conservative side- nothing extreme.

Photo from June 2021.¬† ¬†EBVs from 2021 WWT data. This guy’s dam didn’t have a lot of milk this year, she’s getting older. So I brought them into the barn so he could creep feed. She’s been sold and he’s weaned and could go to a new home any time. He should continue to be fed creep (16% CP+ grain) for another month or two, until his rumen is mature and he learns to graze, to maintain him on a good growth plane.

Really striking dark mahogany ram with a big white blaze, white front toe tips and tail, long hind socks, and white markings on his sides. He is very tall and framey like both parents. Sired by a framey, dark chocolate ram from Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri). Dam traces to KRK, Morgan Ensor’s line, and Aspen Mountain (Aileen Scott, Montana). He’s got good growth EBVs, positive milk, and is more modest on prolificacy.

He should continue to be fed creep (16% CP+ grain) for another month or so, until his rumen is mature and he learns to graze, to maintain his good growth plane.

Offered for sale as a purebred  Katahdin ram lamb $475

Flashy chocolate pinto ram. Dam traces back to Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, now retired) and a big, framey white ram from Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri). ¬†We in the PNW have been lucky to borrow a ram from the USDA Research Station in Booneville, AR; Dr. Joan Burke is lending him to our region so that we can get better linkage to the “cluster” of flocks in the Midwest/South. He’s been on a tour through Idaho and Oregon, and made a stop here last winter to be used in my flock, and he’s headed East now. Take advantage of some great out-of-state genetics!

Note that this ram’s dam is set to be an upgrade due to her sire being an upgrade, but she has a C coat this year. It’s fairly short and well-shed on her belly and sides, so I suspect she may shed fully by next year. But for now, this lamb will be recorded, and can be upgraded to 100% with a hair coat inspection as a yearling next summer.

Photo from June 2021.   EBVs from 2021 WWT data. This ram is register-able and will be weaned in late September and ready to breed later this fall/winter.

Offered for sale as a purebred  Katahdin ram lamb $375

Fawn-reddish colored ram.¬†We in the PNW have been lucky to borrow a ram from the USDA Research Station in Booneville, AR; Dr. Joan Burke is lending him to our region so that we can get better linkage to the “cluster” of flocks in the Midwest/South. He’s been on a tour through Idaho and Oregon, and made a stop here last winter to be used in my flock, and he’s headed East now. Take advantage of some great out-of-state genetics!

His dam is from Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, now retired) and she is a triplet queen! She is a smaller-framed ewe and you can see the less framey growth scores coming both from her and the sire. This ram is what we call a “maternal sire” who would be great for producing replacement ewes that have very high prolificacy and survival, and good milk. Growth can come with good feeding, but # lambs brought to market is our primary profitability lever. This ram is NSIP Stud Certified due to his high index and prolificacy scores.

Offered for sale as a purebred  Katahdin ram lamb $450

Dark chocolate ram with a white krunet marking. Dam is a 2020 yearling out of a fast growth ewe line, and a Birch Cove ram that’s very tall and framey. This dude was born a month after the rest of my lambs, but is keeping pace on weight and sporting a huge milk goiter, so his mama’s milk must be pretty good.¬†We in the PNW have been lucky to borrow a ram from the USDA Research Station in Booneville, AR; Dr. Joan Burke is lending him to our region so that we can get better linkage to the “cluster” of flocks in the Midwest/South.

This ram has good growth, very strong milk and survival, and modest prolificacy. Perfect for those flocks that don’t love triplets but want vigorous, good-growing lambs.
