We have been lambing during the month of February and not quite done yet.  So far, we are truly pleased with the 2015 lamb crop!  "Jack of Diamonds" has sired a powerful set of lambs that are correct throughout with that clean front end, upheaded, level top and good hip that their sire is known for.  We are truly pleased and excited about the lambs that have been sired by "Cadillac Jack"...the lambs definitely show their sire's classic head & color, mass, length of body and hip and very good bone!  We are also pleased with the progeny out of the "Tuff Enuf" son, the 660 ram that goes back to Burlington Northern on his dam's side.  His lambs have an extra shot of length, both down the top and side, long hipped, level topped, with eye appeal.  His lambs are not all on the ground yet but from what we have seen, there are some top lambs out of him.   We will be posting pictures soon and updating the website with info on what's in our Sale Barn this year.  The yearling prospects are looking good!  Stay tuned as we update and post new information!  
 
 
  In the stud pen for the 2014 breeding season we used 3 tremendous studs:
 
 
"Jack of Diamonds",  Reserve Grand Champion Ram, 2011 Reno All American Nugget.  He has been siring some very powerful offspring.  His specialty is upheaded, clean front ends, thickness over the top front to back, straight made, strong topped, big hipped progeny that stand right up on their toes.
 
 
"Cadillac Jack",   "Caddy" was our lead stud headed to Reno this year until he badly injured his front left leg while jumping off of the wash stand right before leaving for Reno.  He healed up over the summer season and we were able to use him on a dozen hand picked ewes.  Caddy has drawn an immense amount of interest from breeders across the country and has been very popular with visitors to the ranch.  He offers up a tremendous amount of mass, bone, rib, natural fleshing ability and classic Suffolk character.  
 
 
We were unable to use "Tuff Enuf" during the 2014 breeding season due to a scrotal injury!  He sired a bold set of lambs for us in 2014 and I can honestly say that I'm sorry he was not able to be used for breeding because his lambs are stellar!  Instead, we used one of his top sons, Prairie Rose 4660-7....an up and coming stud with an incredible hip on him not to mention that stud buck look!

"Tuff Enuf"

"Tuff" comes to us with an interesting pedigree.  He is sired by High Point 3106D (Schambow), who was sired by "Famous Frank", who also sired Schambow's "Milestone", the National Champion Ram at the 2013 NAILE and National Suffolk Show in Louisville.  "Tuff" himself is an impressive stud ram and has really come into his own.  Shown here in his winter clothes, he is a big ram with a good top and hip in him, has exceptional length & breed character.  In his first season of work here, he has sired some mighty fine lambs and we are excited to see how they develop and perform. Stay tuned for more info.
