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.  All of these will be scanned for loineye on June 1st and the chart will be updated.   At that time we will determine which to keep in our flock.  If you are interested in a particular lamb and wish to place a deposit we will hold him for you or have you make a second choice if we decide he is a "keeper".  We plan to post pictures of each animal by the middle of June.   Please contact us for more information on any of these animals.

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.

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.
