New Stock Ram:
Bentley Olympic Gold
Click on images to enlarge
Bentley Olympic Gold was born in April 2011 and was the top ram produced that year.
He was retained for being extremely well fleshed off grass, tight fleeced, very correct on legs and feet and because his dam
DNZ:D16 is still fit and well going into her 9th year.
DNZ:D16 is also dam of the proven stock sire’s Cockleby Jumping Jack and Cockleby Kestrel.
These reasons are also shown in his very impressive performance figures for both Terminal and Maternal traits.
Olympic Gold has been used heavily in 2012 and we are excited to see his first crop of lambs.
