Hampshires
 
 

Our basic philosophy in raising Hampshires is to produce…

 
  • Big framed, fast growing, thick-made Hampshire sheep. We expect our rams to weigh 140 lbs or more at 120 days of age.

  • Structurally correct rams and ewes.

  • Ewes that are easy keeping, long lived, twin and milk heavy.

  • Sheep that have eye appeal, style and breed character.

  • Genetics that are spider free and scrapie resistant.

Our 2015 lambs are sired by...

 
 
Vanguard RR
Sire: Final Edition
Dam: Caskey 6067 by Silver Star


Here is a big framed, wooly headed, stout made ram that moves out on a great set of feet and legs. What make him even more impressive as a stud ram is the rock solid pedigree he has. His sire was the 2011 National Champion Ram out of our best "Aftershock" daughter. Couple that with the Maternal power in his pedigree and it is hard to find one that is bred any better. His Mother also produced "Sixteen" and "New Era" plus 6 daughters retained in our flock.
   
Milestone RR
Sire: Final Edition
Dam: Caskey 8228 by "Aftershock"


A massive made ram that is big ribbed and thick made, with heavy bone and lots of wool on his head and legs. He is lined up "Aftershock" on the top and bottom of his pedigree. His lambs have been impressive in the size, mass and breed type they have. Milestone was the third place January ram lamb at the 2013 National Hampshire Show. He brings the stout design, easy fleshing ability, wooly head and legs, plus attractive show ring appeal to our breeding program.
   
Unforgettable RR
Sire: Sixteen by Charlie's Pride
Dam: Caskey 0716 by Held 2676


Our Second place February ram lamb at the 2013 National Hampshire Show. This upheaded, straight made, attractive, wide hipped, stout ribbed ram caught the attention of everyone who saw him at the farm and most asked about him every time we saw them afterwards. So, it only seemed right that we call him Unforgettable! He brings tremendous balance, style, eye appeal and correctness to our breeding program. His sire was our first place January ram lamb at the 2011 National Hampshire Show and is a maternal brother to New Era and Vanguard. His Dam is a no-miss ewe that has had nothing but good ones and is also the mother of "Inception", our 2014 Reserve National Champion Ram. Caskey 0716 goes back to the great Secret Weapon and Rare Rejection rams. Unforgettable's pedigree is loaded with National Show winners!
   
Remedy RR
Sire: Wheaton "The Situation"
Dam: Gordoneer 823 by "Power Bilt"


If you want them extremely stout made, heavy boned, lots of muscle, wide level hip, wool everywhere and still big enough in frame size, this is the ram. We were impressed by the power and size this ram had when we purchased him in Gordoneer's Dispersal Sale. He looks good fitted or slick sheared. We showed him fitted at the 2014 Minnesota state Fair where he placed second to the eventual Class winning January Ram lamb at the National Hampshire Show. But what attracted us the most was his mother who was one of Gordoneer's elite brood ewes. She has been the mother of many Nationally competitive sheep and is a E.T. sister to Custom Bilt, Ugly Betty and Esther. With powerful brothers and sisters like these prepotent Hampshire's, she brings maternal power to this rams genetic package. Look for Remedy's lambs to make a big impact in the breed.
   
Final Edition RR
Sire: Rare Rendition
Dam: Caskey 5270 by Aftershock


The 2011 National Champion ram. Another ram from our breeding program that is very complete, fault free in his design, great on his feet and legs and has excellent Hampshire breed type. He is bred like the Champion, was the national champion, and is now breeding like a champion. His first lambs all look alike and are very good. Watch for more Champions sired by him.
   
Prairie Gold RR
Sire: Prairie Pride
Dam: Caskey 8360 by Aftershock


Champion Ram at the 2011 Midwest Regional Hampshire Show and 2nd February ram lamb at the 2011 National Hampshire Show. This ram is a very complete, correct, fault free ram that has tremendous bone, a big foot and great breed character. His Paternal Grandmother is the mother of Final Edition. And his mother is another one of the good Aftershock daughters we have.
   
Distinction RR
Sire: Fusion
Dam: Caskey 6170 by Rare Rejection


In the Fall of 2011 we had a powerful set of ram lambs born out of our best ewe families. Distinction was the only one that we did not offer for sale. Not only was he the best of the group but he was the first ram lamb we had born out of the great 6170 ewe that is our best "Rare Rejection" daughter. We have shown every lamb this ewe has had and this son of hers sired by Fusion had to become part of our breeding program. This big framed, complete correct ram has been a stand out in the show ring in 2012. He was the Champion Ram at the Midwest Regional Show, Minnesota State Fair and was the 2nd place fall ram at the National Hampshire Show in Louisville. He also anchored our winning Flock and Best Mixed Pair at Louisville.
