                              Steping out                       Every now and then there is a real need to forget the HO-HUM and to step out and try something a little new. That can be said for our personal life (new dance not a new spouse) as well as how we see we should be breeding sheep. We felt it was about time that we tried and explored different genetics in order to produce a better sheep for the commercial sheep industry. In order to calm this later in life affliction we decided to try two completely different genetic options in the Australian's White Suffolk and the recently developed domestic breed Siremax. Don't ask us what we will gain by using these two breeds as we will not know that until we test and analyze their progeny. What we hope to gain is longevity, hardiness, and the ability to perform well on grass while not sacrificing too much growth. Check back with us next spring or summer and we will be able to tell you if this urge to step out has dissipated.
