Felix Rams has a singular focus on producing efficient and profitable prime lambs by breeding high performance, structurally sound meat sheep rams. Since 2000 thy have weighed more than 19,000 lambs within 12 hours of birth. It is little wonder that a Felix client recently claimed: “You’ve solved our lambing problems”.
They use birthweights, Lambplan breeding values for birthweight and lambing ease to help eliminate the production of rams that sire lambs with excessively high or low birthweights.
At Felix Rams the priority is quick early growth, and maturity, not maximum adult ram size. Their rams won’t be the biggest you will buy, because great big rams are almost certainly late maturing rams. Felix Rams will efficiently produce a 22-28 kg lamb. Over the last five years they have been committed to DNA testing potential young sires for yield and eating quality with over 300 animals tested.
Felix Rams provides Lambplan breeding values for every ram sold, allowing lamb producers to buy on specification to suit their production system.
Felix Rams will offer around 140 Poll Dorset and 45 White Suffolk rams at their annual on-property sale at Greenethorpe on 6th September. Catalogues are available at www.felixrams.com.au or call Rodney on 0417 499 204, or the selling agents, Allan Gray and Co Cowra on 02 6342 2377.
