There is still semen available from 5 year old stock ram BEARWOOD TROOPER who has maternal figures in the top 5% and carcase figures in the top 10% of the Lleyn breed. Customers come back year after year to purchase straws of TROOPER’s semen as they are very happy with the lambs that are sired by him.
In December I am taking 3 rams to Innovis to get semen collected and frozen and straws will be available for the 2014 breeding season.
2 Lleyn rams, ABRACADABRA (619:1100993) and BIONIC (599:1202851) both have maternal and carcase figures in the top 1% of the Lleyn breed and are carriers of the Myomax gene. ABRACADABRA is a great, great grand son of the famous Lleyn ram 172:T184 and BIONIC is a son of the top performing sire BRONALLT BIG DADDY.
The 3rd is the Blue Texel ram lamb, WARRIOR (BBD/13/00925) who was placed first in a highly competitive ram lamb class at the Royal Welsh Show 2013. I purchased this ram lamb at the Beili Blues flock production sale in Carlisle. WARRIOR has pure Dutch breeding so would be ideal for breeders who want to introduce a new bloodline to their flock.
