Transformer
TRANSFORMER - Mrozinski 10-24 RR NN

Frozen Semen - $100/unit

We purchased this proven stud ram from Erik Mrozinski of Indiana. Transformer is a half brother to The 2012 National Champion Ram at NAILE Shropshire Show in Louisville, KY.

Transformer combines thickness with style. His daughters have been piviotal in transforming our flock to more meat and substance. Madness bred to his daughters has been a magical combination for us. So much so that we used Transformer semen in our 2nd LAI to make more daughters in 2018.

Bootlegger
BOOTLEGGER - Slack 2390 RR NN

Frozen Semen - $75/unit

Champion Shropshire Ram
2012 Midwest Stud Ram Sale

Just the ram we were searching for! He's super square hipped and loaded with meat. Bootlegger's length of body and stylish pattern make him one of a kind. His daughters are still producing for us. Bone Chiller and Full Nelson are out of Bootlegger daughters and proof of the high caliber of these genetics.

Thanks to Chad & Molly Barnes of Ohio for purchasing him.

Full Monty
FULL MONTY - Rife 13-166 QR NN

Frozen Semen - $50/unit

Thickness and width of body are Full Monty's trademarks. He is very correct on his feet and legs. Full Monty has good breed character with plenty of white wool. He's a ram we will likely go back and use at some point. His lambs were cool fronted and super competitive in the show ring. Dalton Hicks had Champion Ram at NAILE in the Shropshire Junior Show with a beautiful Full Monty son. We only have a couple daughters in our flock, but they produce. Last year one of them raised a set of twins by Loch Ness that were 1st and 5th at the 2017 Ohio State Fair in a class of over 25 head!

FULL NELSON - Rife 14-225 RR NN

The absolute best RR son of Full Monty! We retained this guy for our program as he has all the great attributes of his daddy. A clean jack front, long body and smooth design. He combines all this style with thickness and meat. His mother is a Bootlegger daughter of our High Life Farms ewe. He's been a standout since he hit the ground.

Thanks to Schoolhouse Shropshires of Ohio for purchasing this proven stud!
