This was a fun ewe in the show ring and now she's exceeding our expectations as a stud ewe. The first ram she produced is serving as stud in MN. Her second crop produced another potential stud ewe for us on the slick shorn side and her twin went to an exciting young show family. FFD 641 is now in our AI program and we couldn't be more excited to see her excel.

Super correct made sheep. This ewe throws some of the best ram lambs ever season. She's not a flashy sheep, but she sure does combine everything in a good complete package.

This is one of those ewes that drops twins and still looks like she has a set of lambs in her. She has produced our highest value of lambs to date. Since 2018, every lamb crop she has dropped has been the fastest gaining lambs.

FFD 502 has been a focus of our operation since 2016. She has produced many rams that are still working around the nation. Her most recent success was the first place Fall ewe lamb at the 2019 SD State Fair. That fall ewe was the first ewe we kept back to show as a yearling since three years prior. Unfortunately with the Corona Virus, she didn't get her opportunity to get shown as much as we were hoping.

The picture attached is from the 2014 SD State Fair as a fall ewe. Our definition of a stud ewe is a ewe that consistently produces twins, and never misses a cycle. Without production you can't maximize output. We also measure a ewe's value by the amount of dollars she's raised and the number of replacements we retain. In our eyes, FFD 512 meets that definition in every sense. In fact she has gotten to the point where her lambs very rarely leave the flock now.
