From left to right: BH 2793 (sired by "SPARTY" the present leading proven sire in the Suffolk breed for the Carcass Plus index) who we consider a great stud prospect and a very complete well balanced ram with a Carcass Plus index of 153, he is one of the two ram lambs we used last fall and we are anxious to see his progeny's scan results; BH 2848 out of Mint Gold 2005 is a high growth ram with a Post Weaning Weight EBV of 7.2 he has tremendous bone and is going to be a big volume ram, he was used by Bob and Judy Foster last fall; BH 2868 another son of Mint Gold 2005 has one of the highest Loin Eye Depth EBV at plus 2.0 of any ram that we have scanned here at Bunker Hill , some would refer to him as a little meat wagon; BH 2865 the far right ram is the second of the ram lambs we used last fall, he has an excellent Carcass Plus Index of 158 which puts him in the top 4% of the Suffolk breed and was bred to a group of top ewe lambs he is also sired by "SPARTY".
We are still waiting on our post weaning weights and scans before any final determinations about these rams but If we have tweeked your interest on a particular ram please let us know, we would be glad to work with you.
