Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ram $400
Dark chocolate ram with a lot of color in his pedigree. Good growth numbers, positive on prolificacy and survival, and a little low on milk. He would make a good terminal sire, and will throw replacement ewes that have fewer triplets and milk complexity, for those who have hands-off flocks. He is out of my newly-purchased chocolate ram from Birch Cove Farm in Missouri (David Coplen); which is a grass-based, minimal input system with a long history of NSIP data. On the maternal side, he’s got a lot of local genetics plus a ewe from Birch Cove.
