SheepThe commercial sheep flock consists of a cross between Suffolk, Dorset & Hampshire. This cross has proven to be very production oriented and can thrive without the use of constant grain supplementation. The ewes from this cross are easy keeping, heavy muscled, maternally oriented sheep that can flat out put pounds on a set of lambs. We believe lambs should be able to reach market weight while nursing and on pasture. The sheep produced from this system are very low cost and can prove to be a very good return on your investment.
We also maintain a flock of purebred Suffolk & Dorset ewes. Ram lambs from these flocks are used in the commercial operation as well as sold to other producers. Ewe lambs are retained for replacements as well as marketed to area farmers. These sheep are also very production oriented and have proven to be able to strive on strictly a pasture based system. Both flocks only receive grain three weeks prior to lambing and another three weeks after lambing. They are turned out to pasture in May where the lambs will reach market weight on strictly a grass diet. We strive to produce these type of easy keeping, heavy muscled sheep so that maintence and production cost stay at very low levels. If you are interested in market lambs or seedstock from this system please contact us at any time.
