Our Icelandic Breeding Ewes

We will have three spectacular unrelated breeding rams paired with our ewes for 2018 lambing season.  We have diverse genetics including some of the newest and highest rated AI genetics coming out of Iceland.  We’ll have lambs from great dairy focused lines along with the superb conformation lines of Grabotni, Salamon, Kveikur, Blettur and more.  We have chosen the best of the best to remain here on the farm for breeding this fall.  We keep and breed only the most parasite resistant breedstock on our farm.  We are excited about our lamb crop prospects for next spring.

See descriptions and photos of some of our breeding ewes below. Updates to follow soon.
