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.Ā  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.

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ram lamb, $550

This is a very standard white ram with some brown dots and a pale eye patch. But his EBVs are Through. The. Roof. ! Killer growth, prolificacy, survival and milk, all while holding birth weight low. This is the best ram out of this year’s crop and on par with my best breeding stock, don’t let him get away! He will take your replacement ewes to the next level, I have no doubt you will see a witness-able jump in progress from these genetics. Pedigree traces back to Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri), KRK (Karen Kenagy, Oregon) genetics. Sire is from Birch Cove, he is one of the highest EBV rams in the country right now, with strong, proven data behind him. We are lucky to have him here on the west coast and he’s going to be an influencer for some time to come. The ewe WAI1550 in this pedigree was a somewhat accidental acquisition and she is not a looker; but has emerged to be quite a ringer in her EBVs and the ram lambs she’s produced, several of which have gone out of state.

Photo taken July 2022. EBVs from EPWWT data. He has been NSIP genotyped. This ram is both NSIP Maternal and Stud Certified. He is ready to go to a new home and start breeding today. I used him some for breeding fall of 2022, so he’ll have some data in the system next year.

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ram lamb, $500

Light chocolate ram with a brockle face. Stellar EBVs across the board and especial strength on milk. Pedigree traces back to Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri), KRK (Karen Kenagy, Oregon) and Thistle Grove Farm (Dr. John Bare DVM, Iowa) genetics. Sire is from Birch Cove, he is one of the highest EBV rams in the country right now, with strong, proven data behind him. We are lucky to have him here on the west coast and he’s going to be an influencer for some time to come. This ram is both NSIP Maternal and Stud Certified.

Photo taken July 2022. EBVs from EPWWT data. This ram lamb is ready to go to a new home and start breeding today. Due to an error in sorting, he actually got his chance early here, and bred a bunch of ewes in the Sept/Oct timeframe (I mean, a LOT of ewes- way more than the textbooks say a 5-month old ram should be able to accomplish…). Not an unhappy accident since he’s such a good ram, but was not according to my timing or plan! So he will be in good company as far as having a lot of data in the system next year.

Offered for sale as a purebred register-able Katahdin ram lamb, $400

White ram with a giant brown eye patch. Below is a photo of his head that gives a better view of his “Popeye” marking. Solid EBVs, though a little more modest on prolificacy and milk. Note this guy has a high birth weight score, so his lambs will be big at birth – I try to avoid pairing these rams with small ewes set to lamb as yearlings, as they often need assistance during delivery. Dam traces back to Misty River farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired) and Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa). Sire is out of Birch Cove Genetics (David Coplen, Missouri).

Photo taken June 2022.Ā  EBVs from 2022 lamb crop EPWWT data run. He is NSIP Stud Certified. This ram lamb is weaned and ready to go to a new home and start breeding today.

Flashy chocolate pinto ram lamb who is a really big guy already. He’s got really strong EBVs across the board, though a little more modest on prolificacy.
