In 2022, as part of the CPT Natural Mating program, Sheep Ireland purchased 13 rams to be mated with the CPT Ewes.
ROSCOMMON FIVESTAR is a Texel ram bred by LambPlus breeders ALMA & LORRAINE BRENNAN who currently resides in CPT farmer BRIAN NICHOLSON’s farm in County Kilkenny. This is an outstanding ram lamb who is a double 5-star and in the top 2 and 3 % within his breed for both Replacement and Terminal Indexes.
ROSCOMMON FIVESTAR has a Euro value of €1.60 in his Replacement Index and €1.97 in his Terminal Index, with very good accuracy of 71%. This ram lamb is 5-star for No of Lambs Born and Survivability, and 4-star for Daughter Milk, with accuracies above 65% in all indexes. He is 5-star and one of the top Texel rams for his Days to Slaughter Index, at -11.3 days with an excellent 76% accuracy.
ROSCOMMON FIVESTAR is taking part in the CPT natural mating this year and will be joining a team of other ram lambs who will be put into a group of 100 ewes. The progeny produced by him will be DNA parentage verified to him and to their respective dams. All performance data of his lambs will be captured throughout the year in the CPT program in 2023.
