"Make the Wise Choice"
2013 OHIO HAMPSHIRE SHOWCASE
Grand Champion Ram & High Selling Hampshire
Herrig 0867 - RR NN Yearling Ram"Turbo" is an awesome stud ram and we cannot
wait until we see his offspring with our "Doc" & "Rare Challenge" daughters.
We are absolutely thrilled to have finally found
a ram we felt 100% confident that could step in and fill the big void that
"Doc" left when he passed on, and continue to breed the bone, muscle,
correctness & breed character. We searched for a long time, and after
studying the pedigree and pictures for several months, we knew when we saw
this ram in person at the Ohio Hampshire Sale, this was the ram for us!
We would like to congratulate Jake Herrig on his dominating success in 2013
and thank him for offering this kind of sheep for sale!

Winning in the show ring is important, but it is certainly not everything. We do not place
our sole purpose of raising Hampshire sheep for show ring purposes only, but
only look at show ring success as "icing on the cake."
While maintaining a competitive edge in the show ring, production, profitability, and affordability are the bottom line, and we strive day in and day out to keep
these 3 goals a top priority. The show ring is one persons opinion on one particular day, and
we do not allow show ring results to interfere with the overall goal or decision
making of our flock.
We believe that you must know your own sheep, and what traits you are looking
for to improve upon. The show ring champions may or may not have those traits,
and in some cases, traits that should never be introduced in your breeding sheep
pride ourselves in focusing on the big picture, of maintaining the functional
Hampshire sheep that we enjoy feeding every day, and that will perform for the long haul. We pride ourselves in making good honest sales to our customers, with pure integrity. We pride ourselves in making a profit at this purebred sheep business, and not an expensive hobby that
will take us under financially. But yet, not to price our sheep so high
that we do not discourage a beginner. We want to be
around for the long haul,
not a fly by night operation. We pride ourselves in raising quality
breeding sheep that maintain high health standards, selecting stud rams that we
feel will make a positive impact on our flock, and
feeding the best quality home grown feed that we can produce, while keeping it
as natural & drug free as possible. These goals are huge in our operation!
but not least we love meeting new people and maintaining a lifelong friendship
with our customers.
