Here is a preliminary listing of our 2015 ram lambs for sale.  The first group is from breeding that focuses on muscle mass.  If you are looking for a sire for fair market lambs, one of these would be an excellent choice.  The second group is more focused on growth.  These rams may be faster growing and more suited to the commercial flock.  

Please contact us for more information on any of these animals.

Click on the lamb's number for pictures where available.  Information on sires can be found on the 2015 Sires page.  Information on dams is located on the 2015 Dams page.

Note A:  Ram was a triplet and at only 4.5 lbs at birth.  His siblings got most of the milk and he was under great stress.  On creep he is filling out with great length and large rear leg.  A true sleeper in this group.  He will be scanned in August.

Note B:  Ram has a wide front and large cuts of meat throughout.  He has a wider front than preferred in the show ring.

Note C:  Ram has weaker pasterns in his legs.  Recommend ram to produce heavier commercial lambs.

Note D:  Ram has some gray throughout but very correct in other ways.

Note E:  Ram was a triplet and the ewe got orf on her teats.  I had to wean the triplets at 5 weeks of age.  The muscle mass has not yet compensated for the lack of milk early in his development.  This is truly the shortest but also the thickest ewe family in the flock.  He will change the pattern of your lambs.

Note F:  Rams 5350 and 5351 are twins from a ewe lamb.  They just need some time to develop.  They will be scanned in August.

The yearlings listed below are being considered to be offered for sale at the NSIP sale in Spencer IA this July 25th.  We will make the final determination after the ram lambs have been scanned and evaluated.
