K Bar K Stud Rams

 We keep a battery of stud rams, out of various bloodlines, on the farm to maintain our genetic diversity. Occasionally we need to go outside the flock for fresh genetics, and have used AI since 2008 (our last outside ram was purchased in 2005) to make these improvements and maintain our closed flock. We tend to use young sires once or twice, then sell them to other flocks to not only keep using the youngest, best genetics in our flock, but also to provide these genetics to other flocks, especially those enrolled in NSIP to make those genetic links critical to cross-flock EBVs. The exception are the AI-sired rams which we keep around longer once they've proven themselves.

 

EBV (Expected Breeding Values) explanations
     
WWT - weaning weight

     PWWT- post weaning weight

     PFAT- post-weaning fat depth

     PEMD- post-weaning eye muscle depth

     NLW - number of lambs weaned

     MWWT- maternal weaning weight

     SRC- Self-Replacing Carcass Index (combination of maternal and carcass traits)

 

For further descriptions and explanations of EBVs on the NSIP website, click here. 

 

Our rams are selected for a balance of traits (not necessarily topping the charts in any one trait), as single-trait selection is not the best approach. We balance EBVs with conformation, breed type, maintaining genetically diverse bloodlines, and other factors that are not yet evaluated via EBVs (i.e. fall lambing or acceleration, close mothering at lambing) to select our next sires.
