Spring in His Step

Check out our rams in action - they are vigorous, structurally sound, and excited to be in your pasture! This here is Lambert who is on the Norwal Farm in Wisconsin owned by Michael Walsh, DVM, & Roger Norgel. They purchased 10 ewe lambs and Lambert in our Fall 2023 Auction. They have a youtube channel @norwalfarm and regularly post content about their flocks and management.  Can't wait to see their spring 2024 lambs!

Lambing Room

We moved to an accelerated lambing program to increase our productivity and give our lambs an extra month on feed before our annual production sale in August. In order to lamb in the fall, we needed to move our lambing from March-April to February, so we built a lambing room to hold our new lambs for the first 2-3 days before they move to the cold housing.  Luckily for us, we were able to finish the barn just in time for the longest, coldest, and snowiest winter on record here in MN!

OPP Free

In 2021, we tested our entire flock and we are still 100% OPP free.  Superior Farms research has show that OPP free flocks are on average 30% more profitable.  We have been a closed, OPP free flock since 2006 and have found that not only is it more profitable, but also eases management considerably. 

Genomic Testing 

Flock54 is a targeted genotyping panel that allows producers to test their flock’s DNA for animal parentage and traits associated with disease, production and meat quality.  Over the past two years, we have tested over 60 rams, ram lambs, and top quality ewes with Flock54 and 100% tested have carried the "Highly Prolific" gene marker.

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 The growth and scan data from our 2020 AI lambs was phenomenal and most of our flock sires have been replaced by the full blood sired AI rams born in 2020.
