Offered for sale as a purebred, record-able  Katahdin ram lamb $450, genotyped

Buckskin-reddish triplet ram lamb. Really strong EBVs across the board. This ram will throw growthy butcher lambs and really productive replacement daughters. Only five rams in the nation born in the last five  years meet or exceed this ram’s EBVs. 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.

Photo from June 2021.  EBVs from 2021 lamb crop EPWWT data and includes the new Genomics run calculations, and this ram is genotyped himself. NSIP is currently not reporting the USA HAIR index, until it can be updated with the new Genomics calculations.  This lamb is weaned and ready to start breeding today!
