LEAGUAN CRUZ – CPT Natural Mating 2022 team

In 2022, as part of the CPT Natural Mating program, Sheep Ireland purchased 13 rams to be mated with the CPT Ewes.

LEAGUAN CRUZ is a Suffolk ram lamb bred by LambPlus breeder MICHAEL PURCELL 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.

LEAGUAN CRUZ has a Euro value of €1,66 in his Replacement Index and €3,11 in his Terminal Index, with very good accuracies of 74% and 75% respectively. This ram lamb is 5-star for Survivability with an accuracy of 69%, and he is also 5-star and in the 1% top Suffolk rams for his Days to Slaughter Index, at -16,1 days with an excellent 81% accuracy.

LEAGUAN CRUZ 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.
