Semen to be collected
170761 is by Felix 160614, and was selected for the Superwhites YST for 2019. Photo taken in January 2018 at 6.5 months.
170761 had attracted our attention when we were selecting ram lambs to use in January, but wasn’t used as a lamb for our main joining. When 160614 had progeny carcase tested for eating quality and yield his asbvs improved considerably, and this made 170761 considerably more interesting. He was used as a backup to adult ewes in the spring but fortunately/unfortunately they were almost all in lamb to the main joining. As a result he only has 6 live progeny on the ground. One of these was sold at our Annual Sale to Detpa Grove. We used 170761 in 2019 and two sons have been used.
170761 is an easy doing, thick, early maturing ram with a great hindquarter and good fleshing. He has outstanding PWEC asbvs, from a solid line of PWEC sires.
