First Champion Club Lamb

Floyd Jenkins Updated: 11/05/2013 @ 4:57am Breeding and selling quality club lambs in VA for 4-H and FFA showman.

We won our first Champion division in 2013.  We have been breeding club lambs for 10 years improving our flock yearly.  This year we achieved success.  Rachel Clark was our showman at Frederick County VA fair and won Lt. Weight Champion.  We also placed first and second in weight classes at Clarke County VA fair in 2013. 

Plans for 2014 lambing season include the 7 new bred ewes we just purchased.  So excited about 2014.

congrats 11/25/2013 @ 11:30am Congratulations on your success. I have a forage based commercial hair sheep operation and I have to chuckle anytime I see a show lamb. Most look like a Dachshund dog with long legs whereas with their large rumens, my sheep look like battleships. I cull out any of those long lean individuals because when they subsist on forage only, those lean ones fall apart in a hurry after lambing or when the pastures dry up. In my operation, it takes an animal with a whopping large rumen to process enough grass hay to feed their lambs. My Katahdins have appetites much like goats. The just love poison ivy, stand on their hind feet to eat tree leaves, will strip bark off of cedar trees and really go to town on the new spring growth on pine trees. They don't eat thistles, but cockleburrs, rose bushes and other weeds are fair game. Good luck next year.
