2021 AI Lambs
Check out the ewes that were selected to produce the next crop of AI lambs that are due March 2021. We are super excited because the full blood genetics have really given us a jump forward in performance and breed type. The growth and scan data from our 2020 AI lambs was phenomenal and most of our flock sires have been replaced by the full blood AI rams born in 2020.

Twin Ewe Lambs - NDSU Meats Lab

Family, friends, and neighbors enjoyed a barbecued lamb prepared by our Brazilian "Chefs" Victor, Louis, and their friends in August 2019. For some it was the first lamb they had ever eaten and others claimed it was the best! Wonderful night had by all!
Honey Mustard Lamb Chops
My daughter Hannah and I finally had the chance to cook up the lamb chops from Spot; they were huge and very tasty. We did a Honey Mustard Sauce which was excellent and kept the chops juicy - just mix 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce, 3 tablespoons mild yellow mustard, 2 tablespoons honey, and hot and spicy mustard to taste in a bowl and spread over chops before cooking!
