Charmoise - very vigorous when born and straight to the teat - ideal for first timers.
Beltex every time , easy lambing very vigorous and cracking quality lambs to sell.
Roussin here , very easy lambing , get up and go like nothing else . Very happy with them.
Have used Portlands for years, they bring on really good lambs without lambing issues.
Charmoise here, but trying Southdown also this year.
+1, a lot of call these days for beltex lambs, fat or store!!
NZ Texel does a good job for us over our Easycare ewe lambs. Good tapered body shape and really vigorous lambs that grow out well.
Second that, small lambs, hardy enough for the ewe lambs to the hang of, and the tups are easy to come by. here anyway.
You got any beltex tups for sale?
Used a highlander ram on highlander ewe lambs this year. Scanned at 140%, they're rearing twins no trouble at all. 70 have lambed so far and we've touched 4 of them - lambing outdoors. Trick with ewe lambs we've found is keep the singles really tight in the 6 weeks up to lambing - twins and triplets (yes we had 5 ewe lambs scanned with trips) get the best. We've had a couple of large singles but on the whole they've been good but they are grazing bare earth almost!
Texel Mule hogg with pair of 3 week old Shetland x lambs at foot.
Sorry not great photo.
Charmoise here, home grown tups, culled hard and selected for functionality and the ability to grow and thrive off grass (none of this dispersal sale rubbish with a short use by date )
Hit the ground running, grow off crap grass and kill from mid summer, can't really go wrong

Shetland ewe lamb (yes they can breed as ewe lambs) with charmoise lamb, end of June last year

Oooooooooof. Going in hard - take no prisoners!
