Offered for sale as a purebred, record-able  Katahdin ram lamb $550

Beefy red ram with brockle face and white markings. Really strong EBVs across the board, I think this is the best ram born here this year, he should produce knockout grower lambs as well as strong replacement ewes. His dam is a mix of local genetics, she came here by way of someone getting out of Katahdins and was a lucky acquisition for me, as her EBVs have been climbing as more of her lamb crop data enters the system. This ram is NSIP Maternal 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. Thus, I haven’t upgrade the sire yet (maybe this year if he sheds adequately, or maybe never); and this lamb will be recorded, and can be upgraded next year to 100% purebred upon hair coat inspection.
