Sire Reference

This a listing of the sires we use or have used. These rams are not for sale; they are our stud rams. Their information and photos are provided so you can see what type of rams we are using to produce the breeding stock we have for sale. The rams’ number is to the far left. His pedigree to the right. We always keep rams out of our best ewes. Therefore I include the ram’s mother’s (dam) lambing records with the ram’s description. Each lambing is indicated by a date, next is number born (S, TW, TR), the number in ( ) is the number of month’s interval in-between lambings. Annual average lambing percent is calculated by taking total number of lambs born divided by the total years of age of the ewe.

Ram 5373 Photo
5373 Family Tree

I consider 5373 one of the best rams I have ever raised. Excellent size, very thick and heavily muscled. Lots of bone, width, depth – plus good length and style. A very big, attractive, well balanced thick ram. His mother 6316 was one of our ‘N’ flock foundation ewes and he is sired by 8315. His dam’s lambing record: 9-15-88 Tw, (7), 3/28/89 Tw, (10), 1/23/90 Tw, (8), 10-15-90 S, (7), 5-27-91 Tw, (8), 2-1-92 S, (12), 2-5-93 Tw, (12), 1-25-94 Tw, (12)*  1/15/95 Tw, ( 8) 9/30/96 S  (* Note: The (3) 12 month intervals are partly due to one year going off accelerated program-getting ewes off schelude.) Lifetime Lambing % = 200 %

Dam 6316 was a heavy milker that always produced our largest lambs.

Note: 5373 died on October 11, 2005 ; he would of been 11 years old in early 2006

Exception dam 03141 had 22 lambs by the time she was 8 1/2 years old and only lost three of those lambs. All triplets and quads lived - and she nursed 3 lambs three times.

She also accelerated inbetween her first and second lambings. 

(*Note up to 1/97 lambing 03141 had never lost a lamb - she lost her twins due to pasturella and excessively cold weather that lambing. Lost 8/98 lamb to E.Coli.)
