RAMS

Since this is a breed up program we don’t own any VBN rams. However, I will list the Rams that we use for AI, including their information. When I chose a ram, I look at the conformation and the markings and I also made sure that the rams I breed my foundation ewes to are ARR/ARR. Many people and farms do not take Scrapie seriously, but it’s not eradicated yet, and I want to make sure my lambs are resistant to it. Maximum Points; To my knowledge no rams that have straws available here in the US have been graded themselves. Genetics is a mixed bag – and mom is 50% of the equation. Choosing whom to breed to is half the fun, seeing how the offspring looks is the other half and will either confirm your strategy or make you focus on a different attribute.

FLANDERS

Just look at this beautiful ram! I’m thrilled to have his outstanding genetics as a base in my breeding program. His sire Pepjin was graded and received Maximum Points. The genetics are there and I’m excited to see how he carries it forward!

REMCO

There is something about how Remco carries himself that just makes you notice him. I love everything about him and am excited that I’m having one of his lambs. In the Dutch grading system (using the Swiss standard but a more detailed 100 pt system). 85 points or higher puts you in the “Top Animal” class. Remco’s sire not only achieved that class, but earned top 10 score of rams of all rare breeds graded that year. Impressive.
