2012 NAILE Jr. Show

Jenna Langer, DeForest, WI, won Reserve Sr. Champion honors with MB Genetics XF-K and finished 3rd in the yearling ewe futurity.  Last year XF-K finished 2nd in the fall ewe lamb futurity. With her bred and owned ewes, Jenna placed 3rd in the intermediate yrlg class and 5th late Feb class, both out of MB Genetics ewes she had purchased and shown as futurity ewes in previous years. Great job Jenna!

Spring is coming fast!

Just one week ago winter's icy tentacles still had their grip on the yearling ewe lot.  Today it hit a record 75, perfect for the fall lambs that were shorn last week.  Next project is to picture lambs available for sales.  Contact us for a time to make your selection here at the farm.
