WVF 2-1160 "Brother White"
Registered Katahdin Ram
Ran across this ram kind of by accident I guess. Brother White was purchased as a young lamb and used one season. Everyone likes to trade rams every year but me I guess. I like to get 2-3 years out of them unless something else comes along better and I just don’t have a use for it anymore. But until a better one is on the farm, I don’t sell them. I have been in the situation more than once where my only ram or main ram died shortly before breeding and that makes it very hard to replace on a moments notice, so I tend to have a few extra rams just in case.
Raised by Tom and Lindsay Hodgman at Waldoview Farm this ram is a nice balanced ram. The older I get the more balanced I like. Single trait selection is a long term rabbit hole that would be hard to get out of. Slow and steady like the tortoise works! Top 10% for WWT, MWWT and US Maternal Hair Index! Top 15% for PWWT, NLB & NLW.
His first lambs will arrive late winter 2023 and we look forward to seeing them! Another maternal heavy Katahdin ram to build replacement ewes from. Notice a trend? The Katahdin breed is a maternal breed and need to make sure we don’t lose those traits.
