Maternal Composite Ewe Flock - Breeding Stock that works as hard as you do!

Flock performance is not determined by genetics alone.

These numbers reflect the performance of only our flock while on our farm and managed under an annual lambing system.

It is not a guarantee of genetic performance in your flock.

Reproductive performance is based on many management factors such as quality nutrition, production system, proper health care and knowledgable lambing techniques.
