Ryeland ram meat or breed
« on: September 11, 2013, 07:34:24 am »
Hi I have 3 young ryeland yews and 1 ram there all six months old, I am wandering if any one can give me some good info about wether he is any good for showing or would be better in the freezer.he comes from good stock but I think he may be a bit small, any advice would be appreciated.

Hunter, have you checked the RFBS website for a list of the breed characteristics? If he doesn't measure up to these then he won't be any good for showing and meat or lawn mower would be your best bet.


As Bloomer has said a pic would help
