KMC 23087

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

Beefy white ram. Very strong EBVs across the board, especially on the maternal side, this ram’s daughters will make excellent replacement ewes. Diverse pedigree with my own genetics plus Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri) and a USDA ram from the Booneville, AR research station that we got to borrow in the PNW for a year. A note of caution: his birthweight score is quite high, which is a common artifact with high growth metric rams. If you are a hands-off lambing operation or you feed¬† your ewes really well during pregnancy, you may want to consider a ram with a lower BWT value; or avoid breeding him to smaller framed ewelambs.

KMC 23077

Offered for sale as a purebred, register-able Katahdin ram lamb, $475

Big, framey mahogany ram with flashy white markings. One of the top rams born here in 2023. Really strong EBVs, top 4% in the nation for Index. But more modest on NLB for those who like to turn the dial down on multi births. This ram will take your replacement ewes to the next level and also bring you strong butcher lambs. Diverse pedigree with local genetics plus Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri) and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired). The granddam WAI1550 is a “ringer”, she came from outside the NSIP system but has risen in the ranks as her progeny outperform their peers; sons and grandsons of hers have gone all over the country.

KMC 23120

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

Beefy red ram with white freckles. One of the top rams born here in 2023. Really powerful EBVs across the board- top 1% in the nation for milk and WWT, top 15% for PWWT, top 10% for survival, and top 2% for Index. But a little more modest on NLB, for those who don’t love a lot of multi births.

A lot of Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri) genetics here plus a USDA ram from the Booneville, AR research station we got to borrow in the PNW for a year. This ram will take your replacement ewes to the next level and also bring you strong butcher lambs. A note of caution: his birthweight score is quite high, which is a common artifact with high growth metric rams.

KMC 23082

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

Big bodied white ram with some black face dots. Strong growth, survival and milk scores, but more modest on prolificacy for those who don’t love triplets.¬† A mix of local, Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM Iowa), and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired) genetics. A note of caution: his birthweight score is quite high, which is a common artifact with high growth metric rams. If you are a hands-off lambing operation or you feed¬† your ewes really well during pregnancy, you may want to consider a ram with a lower BWT value. Note: this ram is horned, but I have him listed anyway, at a discount, because he has very strong EBVs and and make a great terminal sire. The horned/poll genes tend to only crop up in a small number of progeny, and if not preferred, those can go in the butcher channel.

Photo taken July 2023. EBVs from 2023 EPWWT data. Ram is NSIP Stud and Maternal Certified. He will be weaned mid-August and ready to start breeding right away!

Solid red ram. Really strong EBVs across the board.  A mix of local and Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri) genetics. Let this beefcake take your growth, prolificacy, survival and milk to the next level! Note that this ram is line-bred on the grandsire side. Also a note of caution: his birthweight score is quite high, which is a common artifact with high growth metric rams.

KMC 22004

Offered for sale as a purebred register-able Katahdin yearling ewe, $375

Graceful ewe with subtle red roan coloration; a very slick shedder. She has really strong EBVs across the board and is right on my cut list for keeping, but her milk score is a little modest for me. Sire is out of Birch Cove Genetics (David Coplen, Missouri). Dam is my genetics tracing back to Misty River farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired) and Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa).

Photo taken May 2023.  EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data run. This ewe is NSIP genotyped. She can go now with her white ram lamb for an extra fee, or in July by herself when he is weaned.
