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.
