We are super excited to share with you about the top of the nation genetics we purchased from across the nation this year!
We purchased 3 top rams and 3 top ewes, as well as hauled back an incredible ram lamb on loan from the USDA. In the pictures, you can see them in quarantine just after they got here. They have since put on weight and are integrated in with the flock.
Take a look at our "Breeding Rams" page for more information on these incredible herd sires. We look forward to seeing their lambs!
The three ewes we hauled back came from Missouri. Two of the ewes came from Lynn Fahrmeier and are in the top 10 ewes born in the nation in 2019 for lbs. lamb weaned/ewe. They are incredibly balanced in all traits and are out of one of the best sires in Katahdin history. The other ewe lamb was from David Coplen and was in the top 10 ewe lambs born in the nation in 2019 for parasite resistance. We look forward to seeing the great lambs they give us as we seek to provide the best breeding stock genetics we can to our customers.
