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