In 2022, as part of the CPT Natural Mating program, Sheep Ireland purchased 13 rams to be mated with the CPT Ewes.
LUNA AVATAR is a Charollais ram lamb bred by LambPlus breeder CIARAN COUGHLAN who currently resides in CPT farmer JOHN LARGE’s farm in County Tipperary. This ram lamb is a double 5-star and is in the top 2 % within his breed for both Replacement and Terminal Indexes.
LUNA AVATAR has a Euro value of € 4.63 in his Replacement Index and € 3.25 in his Terminal Index, with very good accuracy of 72% and 73% respectively. This ram lamb is also 5-star for No of Lambs Born and Survivability, and 4-star for Daughter Milk, with accuracies above 66% in the 3 indexes. He is also 5-star and in the 1% top Charollais rams for his Days to Slaughter Index, at -25.5 days with an excellent 79% accuracy.
LUNA AVATAR 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.
