Offered for sale as a purebred Katahdin ram lamb $400
Dark chocolate ram with a white krunet marking. Dam is a 2020 yearling out of a fast growth ewe line, and a Birch Cove ram that’s very tall and framey. This dude was born a month after the rest of my lambs, but is keeping pace on weight and sporting a huge milk goiter, so his mama’s milk must be pretty good. 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! This ram has good growth, very strong milk and survival, and modest prolificacy. Perfect for those flocks that don’t love triplets but want vigorous, good-growing lambs.
Photo from June 2021 with his dam. EBVs from 2021 lamb crop EPWWT data and includes the new Genomics run calculations (though this ram isn’t genotyped himself). NSIP is currently not reporting the USA HAIR index, until it can be updated with the new Genomics calculations. This ram is register-able, weaned and ready to start breeding this fall!
