RAMS FOR LOAN
The Group has two rams for loan to members for the 2020 tupping season, the rams representing lineage from the three rarest, male foundation blood lines in 2009. There are currently two founder line rams held on behalf of the MLSBG for loan to members.
• Carrcross Banff L19426 born 2017, 4 horned and carrying rare foundation genes is available to MLSBG members this Autumn. He is currently near Exeter in Devon and if not required in the South West will be moving back to Northamptonshire before the tupping season.
• Glebethorn Nelson L19819 born 2018, 2 horned and carrying rare foundation genes is available to MLSBG members this Autumn. He is currently in Northamptonshire.
Though the Group encourages any member who wishes to introduce these rarer male blood lines into their flock to use the animals, these rare foundation lines would be strengthened by them being placed with ewes with similar heritage. Unfortunately, the Group has been unable to refresh the original data, but if you have animals whose pedigrees show great-grandparents from Periwinkle, Salvator, Pen-Y-Lan, Wernlas, Greenholme or Beilidu flocks, please consider using one of the Group’s rams. If you are interested, please send me [email protected] your ewes’ registration numbers.
To arrange loan of either ram, contact Barry Lewis 01327 842 016 or [email protected]
