4-H/FFA Starter Flocks

We have Hampshire Sheep and Southdown Sheep breeding stock available at all times. If you need a youth project, we can put together a package of ewe lambs plus an unrelated ram lamb.

Customers interested in a few ewes for a hobby flock of "weed eaters" are just as important to us as those with long range goals of profit oriented flocks of larger numbers.

Hampshire Rams and Southdown Rams are available for both registered breeders and commercial sheep flocks. We strive for heavy muscled, fast gaining rams that are easily maintained. Our many repeat buyers are certainly appreciated.

We also run 150 commercial white faced range-type ewes that produce super cross-bred replacement ewe lambs available early in the summer.

Livestock loans are available for young people interested in doing the paperwork. Below are links available for Junior Livestock loans.

Through your local Farm Service Agency (FSA)

Check with your state's Department of Agriculture:
South Dakota Department of Agriculture Financial & Loan Programs

Give us a call, we'd love to talk sheep. Email pictures are also available of breeding stock.
