We had a great time at the Reno All American Nugget this year winning Reserve Grand Champion Ram from Class 1 Yearling Rams and sitting at 1st and 2nd place in Class 2 Yearling Rams.  THANK YOU to our Reno buyers:  Ian Brennan, British Columbia, Canada,  Stavros Brothers. Utah,  JHP Suffolks, Idaho and Summey Family Farm, California.  We appreciate each of you!
 
 
Due to overwhelming technical difficulties the last few months we have been unable to post updates until now!  Coming Soon....new information and photos in December!  We are looking forward to the 2015 lambing season.  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 are excited for his lambs to arrive.
 
 
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....an up and coming stud with an incredible hip on him not to mention that stud buck look!  We are looking forward to see what type of lambs this young ram will put on the ground!  Stay tuned for more information and photos this month!

"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.
