  1. Hi Janet,
    Good to see your progress in your sheep flock. I gave up on the Suffolk breed because of the “Hollywood”
    direction that was taken in the breed – meatless wonders is one term I use and personal decisions with my family. I reside in South Dakota about nine miles southwest of Newell. My wife and I are aiding her aging mom. Would you think it practical to raise Tamarack sheep here? Would you sell a few ewes with the Booroola gene? I saw your list of rams. Prices??

    Are you still working at the Pine City Vo-Tech?
    Keep up your good work!

    Sincerely,
    Steve Gilmore

      Hi Steve, yes we have people raising our sheep in the Dakotas as well as many other states from coast to coast. They seem to adapt well. That said, they are bred for pasture performance, and may get a little too fat for some heavy grain fed operations, but in those cases people are using our genetics primarily as a maternal line.
