We will have a pen of 5 yearling rams and a pen of 5 ram lambs in the sale this year. Their EPD for post weaning growth will average over 7 pounds. That should translate to lambs coming off the range in the fall weighing an extra 7 pound then those lambs sired by the average Suffolk ram. We are also consigning one of the best ram lambs we have sold in the last couple years as our stud. He is sired by Sparty and has the second highest muscle X growth index of any Suffolk ram lamb born in the breed over the last two years at 169 and has an EPD for growth at nearly  +11 pounds. We will have our truck and trailer at the sale for anyone needing transportation back into the midwest. The sale is Oct. 10th in Spanish Fork, Utah.

We loaded the trailer this morning with 25  Suffolk Ram lambs on their way to the Tom Boyer ranch in Coalville,Utah. Tom will condition the rams to range conditions on his ranch until they are sold. The load contains well grown out ram lambs weighing between 150 and 200 pounds and ready for use this fall. There are several top rams that should be used as studs in registered flocks and the balance as superb range bucks. All rams have EPDs and have been selected for growth and loin eye size. If you would like a listing of these rams you may contact us or Tom Boyer ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it 801-376-4685).

The interest was strong and bidding active for the Suffolk rams at this year's NSIP Sale in Spencer, Iowa. The Suffolk rams avoided prices that were extreme on either end and averaged over $600 making them affordable to the many commercial ram buyers in attendance. Overall I believe the commercial industry in the midwest may be turning the corner on seeing the benefits of performance based breeding programs. On a personal note, Bunker Hill Farm was pleased to have the high two indexing Suffolk rams in the sale as well as the 2nd and 3rd high indexing ewes.
