Rams for Stud Service
All of our Rams are tested for Scrapies resistance using the Codon 171 test. Only Rams that are RR (resistant to scrapies) are used as stud rams.
Kentucky Meadows was incredible to work with. The Crowley’s were so patient and kind with us, giving us beginning farmers at Hootenanny Hill Farm advice and assistance throughout the two months that we utilized their stud, Cleo. Speaking of, Cleo was well taken care of and such a laid back gentle ram. He was a fun temporary addition to our farm.
We will most definitely seek Kentucky Meadows out again for any future stud needs. They are an organized, knowledgeable, and approachable business. Thank you so much!
We know that it doesn't make sense for all flocks to keep several rams in order to maintain genetic diversity, and we also realise some folks simply don't like managing rams. At Kentucky Meadows we love our rams and offer a Stud service in order to help smaller and larger flock owners maintain genetic diversity. We are very serious about bio-security / health and have a strict protocol for our stud service and a very specific stud service agreement which is available at the link below. Currently we offer Rambouillet Rams, however, by fall we expect to offer Merino Ram stud services.
