In the middle of July, 9 high quality Latvian Black head breeding rams arrived to their new home at Saaremaa Ökoküla farm. As we have been purchasing new rams every year in Estonia, the choice has become rather limited and therefore offering from Latvia is a good alternative. Latvian Black head and Estonian Black head sheeps are rather similar on their breed caracteristics and even outlook.
Two rams were bought from a Latvian sheep breeding center's auction and rest of them from selected Latvian sheep breeders.
Last year we imported breeding rams firs time from Latvia and their lambs are very good quality. Therefore we decided to extend the number of imported rams this year. Earlier Saaremaa Ökoküla has been importing rams also from Denmark.
