Females are the core of any quality flock. Their performance is the yardstick used to measure improvement, your successes and your failures. We’ve highlighted some ewes that describe our roots, as well as our progress to date. To do this, we present a series of profiles for individual animals including several mature ewes from our Proven Ewe Lines to demonstrate the strengths of our foundation stock. Some of these ewes have been retired, but their character lives on in the many daughters we have retained for breeding. We also profile several Promising Young Ewes that represent years of genetic selection. These ewes have many productive years ahead and are representative of the type of females we offer for sale each year. Finally, we present profiles for a few Balanced Ewe Lambs. These represent high-value females whose performance data excel at multiple traits that are economically important and demonstrate the accomplishments of our breeding programs.
