Tests Are In!

Just in from the testing lab - micron tests on Wild Rose Farm #328 & #329, our yearling registered Rambouillet ewe lambs pictured on the July 26th post! Ewe #328 has an 18.6 micron test and #329 has a 20.2 micron test. These are the first micron test (or average fiber diameter tests) results that we've gotten from lambs sired by our Andrew Schafer "Colorado" ram. We'll send more details regarding standard deviation, coefficient of variation & %>30 microns to Andrew via email. Can't wait to see their staple length at next shearing.
By the way, yearling ewe #328 is a full sister to the polled Rambouillet ram lamb pictured on our July 28th post with his 11 year old dam, Wild Rose Farm #802. He is for sale and will be weaned soon.
