Tunis ram or ram lamb wanted

Postby mamodei » Wed May 02, 2012 6:35 pm

Now that I have a flock of Tunis and Tunis crosses I'm thinking to use a Tunis ram if I can find one from a flock that prioritizes production characteristics. My priorities are hardy, good mothers, good carcass and prolificacy, in about that order. I'm almost entirely pasture, grazing stockpiled grass until the snow stops us. The sheep live out.

If I can't find what I want in a Tunis I'll go to NCC.

Anyone have Tunis or know a good Tunis flock that selects towards these goals? Everything I see is show sheep when I'm searching.

I'm in MA.

If you haven't already, you might contact Ben Machin in Vermont: http://www.tamaracktunis.com/index.html.

I've never seen his sheep, but in conversations I've had with him about Suffolks and Horned Dorsets, his goals seem to be in line with what you've described.

I just checked out their web site and sent a note. Not only do they seem to have production priorties, but they are under 3 hours from me. Thanks for the tip.
