Our flock consists of Targhee range ewes that have proven to be easy fleshing, thrifty sheep that can adapt to whatever the season brings. Our low rainfall climate (12" total avg. precipitation) produces good hard grass but not much of it. Ewes raised in these conditions have developed an excellent foraging ability and will thrive where other breeds may fail. All of our Targhee breeding rams have been sourced from Montana breeders as well as the Montana ram sale, held every September in Miles City, MT.
We have ewe lambs for sale in the fall around October/November. We don't breed our ewe lambs, but prefer to allow them to reach maturity before getting them into production. We also sell a select group of yearling ewes that we have grown out and kept back for our own breeding program as well as aged ewes that may work in smaller farm flock settings.
Select yearling rams are sometimes available as we do keep a few of our own for breeding. The selection is based on a number of criteria centered on grass based sheep production and top quality fleeces. All of our Targhee breeding rams have been sourced from Montana breeders as well as at the Montana Ram Sale held every September in Miles City, MT.
Our sheep have great quality wool and produce a clip that often commands a good price. Shearing takes place in the spring before we lamb. This is done to harvest the wool in top condition and prevent contamination from feeders in the yards during the lambing period. Other than lambing, the ewes are on grass year round which contributes to clean fleeces with very little contamination.
