Felix Rams have focused on producing efficient and profitable prime lambs by breeding high performance, structurally sound meatsheep rams for 20 years. They started weighing lambs at birth in 1996, and have since weighed more than 22,500 lambs within 12 hours of birth.
Birthweight records go into Sheep Genetics – Lambplan to help eliminate the production of rams that sire lambs with excessively high or low birthweights. The majority of Felix Rams hit the sweet spot for birthweight asbv of between 0.1 and 0.5, and pfat asbv between -0.8 and +0.5. these rams are consistently in the top 25% of terminal rams for growth rate and eye muscle.
