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.
