Our Rams

Our flock involves seven rams from different bloodlines. The rams come from the Blackhill flock of Jim and Joe Dufosee, from the Gortleigh flock of Gill and Richard Trace and from the Sherborn flock. In 2019 we imported Sherborn Agile and Gortleigh B2908. In 2018 we hired an Australian bloodline (grandson Mick Dundee) and bought three ewes from the Blackhill flock that were tupped by Blackhill Zing. We are severe in selecting ewes and rams. The rams are supposed to be well developed and muscled. In 2015 we imported Blackhill Wolverine, and in 2016 Blackhill Wisgerhof and in 2017 Blackhill Neanderthal. All these rams are long and quite muscular. The English import is predominantly selected based upon of index numbers.

Sale

We only sell approved rams for breeding purposes. Rams that do not meet our requirements go for consumption. To properly assess a ram, we only sell it when it is at least 6 months old. We maintain an index ourselves so that we can indicate the growth rate at 8 and 21 weeks.
