2017 Wyoming Black Face Ram Test
Jock entered two of our 2017 ram lambs into the Wyoming Terminal ram test. We held our own against the traditional Suffolk, Hampshire, and crosses that have been entered into the test in the past, especially in the loin eye and ADG categorys. It was apparently the first time Shropshires had been entered, so we were pleased with the results. These two rams were Sired by Knepp 1325, “Sport Pepper 2nd”, a son of Hiemke 12034 “Sport Pepper”. The dams were our F2 crosses, (50 % Hiemke/Groverman, 25 % Cabaniss, and 25% Knepp Legacy.)
