The Matt and Michelle Knepp family, Grace, Dillon, and Santiago, in Lincolnville, KS are adding a performance and evaluation dimension to the program. They will be working with select ewes and rams to optimize genetics and performance for introduction into the western range flock. This will include evaluation of animals at various growth stages and selection of top animals for showing and breeding.
