2012 Premier Sale.

Worcester market - Saturday 30th June.

   We have entered 3 ram lambs for this year's Premier Sale. They are pictured below, washed but untrimmed. My apologies for picturing them indoors, the grass paddocks are a 'touch' muddy!

Lot 162: 12ZVY 01342 - Lowerye Marvel. 

    This lamb is bred from power on power and has stood out from birth. He is sired by L.Kinell (ZVY:00084), who was our best son of Inglis Chalky (CN2048). Dam is a powerful, milky ewe by L.Great Guns, who still holds the record for the highest eye muscle recorded in a Charollais at 44.5mm and out of a Lowerye Charlie daughter. 

    Marvel is the highest index ram lamb in 2012 and the highest index lamb ever offered for sale. He is also MyoMAX Gold.

Genotype: ARR/ARR. Breed Index 512.


Lot 163: 12ZVY 01377 - Lowerye Miraculous.

    A powerful lamb by Edstaston Leopards Den (TG:1100073), who we purchased jointly at last year's Premier Sale for 3,000gns. Leopards Den was the highest index lamb sold on the day, by virtue of his massive eye muscle area that had been identified by CT scanning. All of his progeny exhibit the same quality, with great width of loin. The dam of this lamb is built like a brick outhouse, being sired by former sire reference ram, Crogham Five Star (AB:5085) and out of an early daughter of Lowerye Eric. The g.dam reared twin lambs this year at 7 years of age. 

    Like his sire, Miraculous is MyoMAX Gold.

Genotype: ARR/ARR. Breed Index 387.


Lot 164: 12ZVY 01290 - Lowerye Mighty.


    Mighty is by a son of Mortimer Investment (HH8169), who was the top priced ram at Builth in 2009 and sired the 4,000gn L.Lucky Lad at last year's Premier Sale. Mighty's dam is the 8 year old dam of the high muscle stock ram, L.Impressive, the g.dam of L.Kaiser and the g.g.dam of L.Lucky Lad. She has bred ewe lambs with a 40mm eye muscle and 42mm (still the highest measured eye muscle in a Charollais female) and had an eye muscle of 38mm herself. She breeds high muscles regardless of the ram she is put to and Mighty's muscle depth ebv is no exception at +4.77mm.

    Mighty carries one copy of the MyoMAX gene.

    Genotype: ARR/ARR. Breed Index 370.
