Dear Agriculture Friends: Welcome once again to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s 2016 Performance Tested Ram Lamb and Meat Goat Buck Sale. This is the culmination of a 77-day test program for rams and 70-day test program for bucks at the Pennsylvania Livestock Evaluation Center. These outstanding offerings demonstrate the commitment to excellence by breeders and the hard work undertaken at the center that together ensure Pennsylvania remains the Northeast's longstanding premier location for purchasing high-quality stock. Enhancing the experience are the presentations, contests and awards that help make this a well-rounded field day that unites and educates producers, especially those of the next generation. Today's sale is proof that partnerships leverage results. This isn't an effort that any of us could take on alone. We'd like to thank our partners and contributors for their dedication:
Livestock Technical Committee, Pennsylvania Animal Health and Diagnostic Commission, Pennsylvania State University, Sale Committee, Auctioneer, and Ringmen.
And I sincerely thank each of you – for working in an important segment of Pennsylvania’s agriculture industry, helping improve our state’s respected flocks and goat herds, and increasing the quality of products offered to consumers. I look forward to our continued partnership. Enjoy the sale. Sincerely,
Russell C. Redding Secretary

Sales Performance Tested Rams and Invitational Ewes Performance Tested Bucks and Invitational Does
Ram and Goat Sale Order Rams will sell in the following order: Suffolk, Dorper, White Dorper, Dorset, Texel. Sale order within breeds or breed groups will be by index. Ewes will be sold following rams Boer bucks will sell in the following order: Senior Full Bloods, Junior Full Bloods, Senior Percentages, Junior Percentages. Sale order will be by index. Does will be sold following bucks. All animals are cataloged in their order of sale.
Suggested Care and Management 1. Rams and bucks are well developed and properly cared for and should adequately cover females. 2. Ram lambs and young bucks should not be expected to breed more than 25 females the first year. As they are still growing, give them grain and grass or quality hay. DO NOT OVERWORK RAM LAMBS OR YOUNG BUCKS. 3. After placing a young ram or buck with females, allow several weeks for the animal to adjust and begin servicing the flock or herd. 4. Unfamiliar rams or bucks will fight when first introduced. If rams or bucks must be housed in the same pen, ensure it is small enough the animals can’t gain enough momentum to hurt each other. Otherwise, placement in adjacent pens for several days before group housing should relieve this problem. 5. Ensure the success of your lamb or kid crop by periodically checking to see if ewes or does are settling. 6. Keep the new ram or buck around the barn or in a small lot for at least a week after arrival. This will allow him rest from the trip and to become accustomed to his new surroundings.
General Information 1. MANAGEMENT OF THE RAMS AND BUCKS Participating rams completed an official 77-day performance test and the Boer bucks have completed an official 70-day performance test at the Livestock Evaluation Center on July 5. Prior to the start of the tests, rams were allowed a 14-day adjustment period and bucks a 21-day period during which they were dewormed, introduced to the LEC ration and prepared to begin the test. Throughout the performance tests, rams were self-fed a textured 16% protein feed. Bucks were self-fed a pelleted 16% protein feed. All animals received a small amount of grass hay. 2. PERFORMANCE RECORDS Individual performance records exist for each ram and buck cataloged. These records include: a. Average Daily Gain – weight gained over course of test divided by days on test b. Weight Per Day of Age – average weight gain per day since birth c. Loin Area – ultrasonically scanned between the last two ribs, then adjusted based on average weight within breed d. Fat – measured ultrasonically, and to some degree indicates composition of gain e. Type – all rams scored 12 or higher at delivery time f. Ratio – The percent above or below average a ram or buck is within his own breed group for a particular trait. A ratio of 100 is average. 3. INDEX Ram Index = (.35 x average daily gain ratio) + (.35 x final weight per day of age ratio) + (.15 x adjusted fat thickness value) + (.15 x adjusted loin muscle area value) Buck Index = (.40 x average daily gain ratio) + (.20 x final weight per day of age ratio) + (.20 x loin muscle area value adjusted by test goat’s breed avg. metabolic weight) + (.20 x hind leg circumference measurement adjusted by test goat’s breed avg. metabolic weight) Animal’s index divided by the average animal index within a breed provides the index ratio. 4. HEALTH Participating rams and bucks are in very good health and can go anywhere. All rams and bucks have been examined for reproductive soundness, and all rams have been gene tested for the scrapie resistance gene. Semen has been collected from all senior rams and senior goats and have passed minimum standards required by the American Society of Theriogenology. 5. The rams and bucks have been evaluated for performance, but potential buyers are responsible for evaluation of type, soundness and breed character. All rams and bucks sell as is. 6.
Kids born from percentage boer parents may not be eligible for registry in certain Boer goat associations. Buyers interested in registering percentage Boer goats should contact their breed registry.

Terms and Conditions of Sale 1.
2. 3. 4.
Terms of the sale are cash or check. Any owner of a ram or buck qualified for sale requesting that payment be made in cash rather than by check must first do so in writing to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Livestock Evaluation Center prior to sale day. This condition will then be announced prior to the sale of that animal. All checks must be made payable to Swope Auctioneering and Associates. No ram or buck may leave the premises until payment has been received. Each ram or buck will be sold to the highest bidder. The auctioneer will settle any disputes regarding bids that may arise. This decision will be final. Certificates of registry will be furnished and transfers will be made by the sale committee, at the seller’s expense, to the purchaser within a reasonable time after the sale. Registration certificates for any progeny of these sires are dependent upon the breed association. (i.e. kids from percentage Boer bucks may not have the ability to be registered within certain breed associations). All rams and bucks are at the seller’s risk until sold and will be the buyer’s risk as soon as sold. However, if not convenient for the buyer to remove the ram or buck the afternoon of the sale, the ram or buck will be cared for up to a maximum of 72 hours after the sale at the buyer’s risk. After 72 hours there will be a nominal fee. Certificates of Veterinary Inspection will be furnished by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. All rams and bucks are guaranteed breeders by the sellers, providing they are properly cared for and not exhibited on the show circuit prior to being used for breeding. Any ram or buck that settles one third of the healthy females he services will be considered a breeder. In the event a ram or buck is thought to be a non-breeder by the buyer, he may be returned to the seller at the buyer’s expense within six months of the sale date. In the case of a ram or buck claimed to be a non-breeder, the seller is entitled to the period of time, following return of the ram or buck, required to take him through the next regular breeding season, in which to demonstrate that the ram or buck is a breeder. If in that time the ram or buck proves a non-breeder, then refunding of the purchase price shall be considered full settlement. Other procedures for settlement may be taken if satisfactory to both the buyer and the seller. The above guarantee and terms of the sale shall constitute a contract between the buyer and the seller for each ram or buck sold and shall be equally binding upon both. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, Pennsylvania State University, Pennsylvania Sheep and Wool Growers Association, test sale management or any other person or organization connected with the management of the sale do not assume liability, legal or otherwise, except to help make any needed adjustments. All persons attending the sale do so at their own risk. Neither the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, nor any other person or organization connected with the sale will assume liability, legal or otherwise, for the safety in the buildings, on the premises or in behavior of the animals.
