2021 University of Florida Ram Test & Sale

We invite you to participate in the inaugural 2021 University of Florida Ram Test and Sale. We are very excited to initiate this unique program and to work with sheep producers to quantify the desirable qualities of their rams. We hope that this program will provide value to your operation.

This program is designed to standardize environmental conditions in order to evaluate individual ram performance, provide a source of high-quality performance-tested rams to producers, offer educational opportunities for the improvement of the industry, and facilitate networking among producers.

Eligible rams must be born between 1/1/21 - 3/15/21 and weaned by 4/15/21.

We encourage you to consider consigning your rams to the 2021 UF Ram Test and Sale. Please contact us for further information or to consign animals to this program. Rams must be pre-registered by May 1, 2021 in order to be enrolled in the program.
