KMC 21058

Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able  Katahdin ram lamb $375

Classic white ram lamb with some black spotting. Positive growth, and strong on prolificacy, survival and milk; this is a “maternal ram” built to produce replacement ewes. He is NSIP Maternal certified. He is on the small side due to being a triplet, but his scrotal circumference is pretty decent, indicating early maturity genes. So I think he’ll be able to service a small group of ewes just fine.

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. ¬†His sire is an upgrade, a B coat, but most of his offspring are good shedders; and this ram lamb can be fully registered.¬† His maternal line traces back to KRK genetics plus more Birch Cove.

Photo from September 2021. EBVs from 2021 lamb crop EPWWT data and includes the new Genomics run calculations (though this ram isn’t genotyped himself). NSIP is currently not reporting the USA HAIR index, until it can be updated with the new Genomics calculations.¬† This ram is weaned and ready to start breeding today.

Dilute chocolate ram. Sired by a framey, dark chocolate ram from Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri). Dam traces to KRK genetics and Morgan Ensor’s stock. Balanced and moderate EBVs with good survival, this guy is teed-up to throw good replacement ewes as well as good butcher lambs.

Offered for sale as a purebred  Katahdin ram lamb $375

Classic white ram lamb with a very clean shedding hair coat as a lamb. Dam traces back to Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, now retired).¬† 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! This ram is positive on growth, moderate on number of lambs born, and very strong on survival and milk. More of a “maternal ram”, he’ll give you good replacement ewe daughters while still producing good butcher lambs. He is NSIP Stud Certified.

Offered for sale as a purebred, record-able  Katahdin ram lamb $425

Really nice-sized red roan ram lamb. Really nice EBVs across the board.  He should throw really strong growing butcher lambs as well as keeper replacement ewes. He is NSIP Stud 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. ¬†His sire is an upgrade, a B coat, but most of his offspring are good shedders; and this ram lamb can be fully registered.¬† His maternal grandsire is from Thistle Grove Farm (Dr. John Bare, DVM in Iowa), a dedicated grass-fed NSIP flock.

Photo from July 2021 with his sibling and dam (this ram is red-marked one on the right, his sib is the white one on the left).¬† It’s interesting to note these rams have a really high maternal weaning weight score (MWWT or maternal milk) and look how close they stay to their dam, even at 90 days of age! There is a correlation there, for sure; dams that keep their lambs close feed them more and they gain more weight, and all of this maternal and bonding behavior is genetic.

Offered for sale as a purebred  Katahdin ram lamb $400

Flashy chocolate roan 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 traces back Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired) and some KRK genetics (Karen Kenagy, OR). This guy is very strong in growth, milk and survival, more modest on prolifacy. He’ll produce good-growing butcher lambs and replacement ewes that have great milk and survival traits, but hopefully will be a little lower on the twin-triplet scale, for those who despise multi births.

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

Beefy chocolate ram with brockle face and white markings. Really strong EBVs across the board, this is the best ram born here this year, he should produce knockout grower lambs as well as strong replacement ewes with high prolificacy and milking. 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 both NSIP Maternal and NSIP Stud 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. His sire is an upgrade, a B coat, but most of his offspring are good shedders; and this ram lamb can be fully registered. To get such strong EBVs on every measure is hard, so I’m willing to take a little back wool to get it! See the below rankings in the national percentiles: only five other rams have been born in the nation in the last six years, which are on par with, or beating this ram!¬†
