BREEDING MISSION

1) Health of the flock
Our flock is closed except for a new ram every few years We do not show our sheep
Fully Certified USDA Voluntary Scrapie Program Flock #7
Member OPP Concerned Sheep Breeders Society - our entire flock has had two AGID
tests and all were negative.
2) Temperament
Our ewes are all very calm. We have culled for temperament.
3) Conformation
We are striving to produce sound, majestic true to type Romneys.
4) Fleece
Through careful research we have introduced spectacular rams by outright purchase
and laparoscopic insemination.
We specialize in raising colored Romeys. In 2008, 14 0f our 18 lambs were colored. We have award winning fleece!
