When I bred Poll semen sire RP17-1133, I thought he was a one off “freak”. I picked out his mother RP13-400, and put her into the 2018 ET program and got 9 live lambs on the ground- All “freaks”. They were massive at weaning and showed exceptional early growth. No other dam has passed on such a prolific birth to weaning and post weaning growth spread as this maternal powerhouse. RP18-0043 was the pick of the 2018 Poll lamb drop and I have 6 full brothers and sisters to him. His weaning weight was 53Kg at 15 weeks old. His 9 month old fleece weight was double the average of the drop in this year’s drought at 7.1kg. He is a double copy PP poll gene carrier. RP18-0043 has the six P’s- Phenotype, Pedigree, Poll Factor, Performance, Predictability and Profitability, making him the definite satisfaction sire at every level. RP18-0043 was sold for the top price of $31,000 at the Rabobank National Ram Sale in 2020. He is also an industry trait leader for Foot rot resistance. Limited Semen available.
