Southdown Ambassador Sale Monday April 17, 2017

This feminine fall ewe lamb shares much of the same pedigree as the past 5 ASBA Fall Ewe futurity winners, including last year’s winner sold through the Ambassador sale.  She is a maternal half-sib to MB Genetics 12F-1972 VISION, sire of the 2016 NAILE Jr. Show Grand Champion Ewe, Reserve Jr. Champion Ewe and the 2nd Fall ewe of both open and junior shows, and also sire of the Res. Supreme ewe at Nebraska State Fair.  Her sire, VALEDICTORIAN, was senior champion of the 2013 NAILE, and he ties the top and bottom of the pedigree together through the great AMBUSH x THE EDGE ewe that also produced IMAGE and IMPRESSION. The extended pedigree would go back to the matriarch EDWINA 5 times. This is more than a futurity ewe entry, she has the genetics to be a foundation and stud ewe.
