Great sale!!! The enthusiasm ran high at this Year's Utah Ram Sale and Bunker Hill Sheep sold among the leaders. Our stud ram lamb sold to Bair Ranch of Colorado for $2,800 and we wish them the best of success with their purchase. Our pen of six yearling rams sold for $900 each and our pen of four lambs brought $550. Pictured above are Tom Boyer (left) western range consultant for Bunker Hill Farm and Bill Shultz.

"FOOLS GOLD"  Bunker Hill 2885 is the best looking ram lamb we raised this year. Great bone and mass coupled with style, balance and correctness. He is sired by MSU 152, born in late Febuary and recently weighed in at 250 pounds. His EBVs are not quite as good as the two 1/2 brothers we are using this fall but are far from shabby. He is positive for loin eye, has a EPD of nearly 10 pounds for post weaning growth and a Carcass plus index of 154. His post weaning EBVs and Carcass Plus index both rank him in the top 20% of the breed. "FOOLS GOLD" a ram who cannot  possibly be as good as he looks!!

2793 sale dayThe sun shined bright on Bunker Hill Farm in Spencer, Iowa last weekend. The ram pictured above Bunker Hill 2793 was the top selling ram at this year's Center of the Nation  NSIP sale. In fact he is now the top selling ram of any breed in the existence of the sale. We would like to thank Connie Rule (and husband Spence too) for purchasing this terrific stud. The Rule's have previously used our genetics and we consider it a great compliment that they have found success in our breeding program.
We would like to take total claim for producing and selling such a stud as BH 2793 but alas we can not. NSIP has to take credit for the majority of the success. First, it is the NSIP's ability to define genetic breeding values that has allowed us to breed a ram which has such benefit to the commercial sheep industry. Second, it is the value that good sheep producers are discovering in performance testing and analysis by NSIP that leads to higher prices. We firmly believe that it is the value of NSIP and a breeding philosophy which focuses on the commercial sheepmen that will drive the future of the sheep industry not the selling of one ram.
In the absence of biblical rain we hope to see everyone in Spencer again next year.
