This registered triplet ram lamb is one of our favorites this year! We are selling both him and his brother (19061) as breeding stock as they were both some of our best ram lambs. Last year, we sold both maternal half-brothers as sires as well. Not only does he have excellent EBV's for maternal traits, but he also has nice growth and FEC EBV's as well. He is built very well and has black hooves.
He and all of his litter mates were born without assistance and were all raised by the ewe on grass only after a week or two, prior to that they received hay. No grain ever. Their mother lambed as a ewe lamb with a single and raised her to a large enough size to breed that fall (we retained her and she has been a productive member of the flock), had triplets as a two year old, and as a three year old. She has never lost a lamb.
He has some nice PR, good growth, and fantastic maternal traits. Additionally, he has one copy of the OPP Resistance gene.
He meets all our ideal qualities for a ram. The only reason we are not selling him more $600 is his QR. It is very difficult to find all these traits in one animal!
