FORRESTHILL FERRIS is a Texel ram lamb bred by LambPlus breeders ANN & ROBERT O’MAHONY who currently resides in CPT farmer JOHN LARGE’s farm in County Tipperary. This is an outstanding ram lamb who is a double 5-star and in the top 2% within his breed for both Replacement and Terminal Indexes.
FORRESTHILL FERRIS has a Euro value of €1,88 in his Replacement Index and €2,91 in his Terminal Index, with very good accuracies of 73% and 74% respectively. This ram lamb is 5-star for Daughter Milk and Survivability, and 4-star for No of Lambs Born, with accuracies above 67% in all indexes. He is also 5-star and in the 1% top Texel rams for his Days to Slaughter Index, at -15,5 days with a very good 79% accuracy.
