Our proven Suffolk Stud entry to the 2014 NSIP Sale in Spencer, Iowa. Bunker Hill 2793 is sired by "Sparty" the high indexing proven sire in the Suffolk breed and out of one of our old top proven dams. We used Bunker Hill 2793 on a select group of ewes last fall and are most pleasantly surprised with the results. Bunker Hill 2793 is currently ranked as the third highest proven sire in the Suffolk breed for the Carcass Plus index. He currently has a Post Weaning Weight EBV of 7.0, an Eye Muscle Depth EBV of 1.2, Fat EBV of -3.2 and a Carcass Plus Index of 161 (information listed in the NSIP catalog is incorrect). We think that this is the type of Suffolk Stud ram that can transform the breed. The ram has a large frame with plenty of growth but with tremendous capacity and spring of rib not found on most Suffolk rams. He is siring lambs with a surprising amount of loin eye size all while keeping back fat at a minimal. A great set of wheels and clean fleece complete the package.
Pretty foolish to sell the ram??? We have a 3/4 brother (same dam sired by "War Horse") that we intend to use this fall making Bunker Hill 2793 available. Let us know if you have an interest as we would love to visit more about this proven stud.
