We are pleased to welcome a new ram to our stud sire team purchased at the 2017 Aberdeen annual sale for the top price of $18,000. Aberdeen 617/16 - or Cracker as we have nicknamed him - is a beautifully balanced ram with the Lambplan figures to match including 20.0 for growth, 230 C+ & 145.0 EQ.

Cracker is the son of the well known ram Aberdeen 5/15 who is ranked #2 for Carcase Plus across all Australian Terminal males. His grand sire is also an impressive ram - Aberdeen 16/12 - who boasts over 1000 progeny across 9 studs.
