This buck offers unsurpassed symmetry, along with a massive bone and foot size and fluidity of movement. He also exhibits a unique design through his ribcage, sternum, and shoulder, and adds to this skeletal length and true center body dimension. He is the offspring of Doc, a Cabaniss-bred buck that traces back to Time on his sire side and is a double-bred Stroker on his dam’s side. We believe he is one that can take our program well into the future.
Doc is an exciting ram lamb we purchased from Cabaniss Club Lambs that is as powerful genotypically as he is on foot. Here is a ram that is super extreme through his front end while still having the powerful loin that is a trademark of Cabaniss breeding. He adds to this a hip that will turn any judge’s head and rounds out his completeness with dynamic rib shape and added substance. His first set of lambs is deep, and we plan to utilize his genetics in our flock for years to come.
Council: Council was purchased from Fred Knop; Atlantic, Iowa. He is by Cornerstone, a linebred Omega Son.
Iceman: Iceman is a unique Ultra son we acquired late from Mike Hancock. He exhibits functionality with unsurpassed coolness. He offers stoutness and stability as he meets the ground and is dynamic and dimensional in his rib design. He adds to this elevation and attractiveness through his front one-third as well as athleticism and levelness while on the drive and in motion. Iceman is the missing piece our program has been looking for and should add the complete design we are striving to inject.
Nichols: This is another buck we purchased in 2001, and he quickly became one of the conerstones of our flock. He is stacked genetically going back to the famous Shell 212 four times. Beyond his tremendous genetics, he is an extremely complete ram that is phenomenal in his top shape and attractive from the side. He has sired many featured lots in our sale, and his daughters have quickly found a home in our flock. His consistency is unsurpassed, and he proves this by siring wethers that claim top spots at county and major shows year in and year out. With this type of consistency and genetic power, you cannot go wrong.
Stillwell 9908: Stillwell was purchased in 1999 from Jason Stillwell in Indiana. He’s sired by Sillwell’s Striker ram.
Tonka: Hampshire ram that was leased from Miles and Prater Gibbs.
Top Gun: He is a Smokey grandson out of Barton Club Lambs Maverick. This buck is as sound as they come from a genetic standpoint, and offers a phenotype that is tremendously powerful. He is opened up through his center body and lower rib, and stands on powerful bonework. His true value lies in his loin and hip design and his ability to throw that added touch. We believe this type of Suffolk will never loose a place in the club lamb industry.
