The pick of the 2019 ram lambs, this yearling is long, wide, and packed with solid muscling. He has nice spring to the ribs, wide loin, tracks wide, great Texel head, tight skin, and great overall structure. He has a very calm temperament making him easy to handle in the field or barn. He is a twin and comes from a prolific and very heavily muscled ewe. His sire was born a triplet and sired by the 2015 National Grand Champion ram. 1913 was raised in a grass-based environment and is built to work for you. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have! I am happy to help arrange delivery if you need it.
