HERCULES
Kimm 8079-04227 RR/NN
This Kimm 02022 son is perhaps the strongest sire I have ever used in terms of siring lambs that are useful in all aspects of the industry. Super topped ram with a big flat hip on a great set of feet and legs. Rob Zelinsky and myself acquired Hercules in August 2008 and used him for two very successful lamb crops. We lost him in the winter of 2010 at 6 years old.
  WINDSOR
Van Dyke Suffolks 7066 RR
Windsor comes from my strongest, most predictable ewe family. This same ewe family also produced the likes of "Integrity" (undefeated Fall ram for Tom Burke in 2004), "Dakota" (undefeated Fall ewe for Tom Burke in 2002), 3rd Fall Ram at the 2003 Midwest Sale (sold to Duane Holst, IA) and a host of other great sheep either retained in the flock or sold privately at the farm. Windsor was sired by a Cardiac Arrest son and also goes back to Elvis and several other great sires. Windsor was used heavily in the fall of 2008 before going on to the Tom Burke flock, Platte City, MO. He sired a tremendous set of replacement females here and sons will be used in 2010.
 
     
 

Van Dyke 12-2057 RR/NN
Lot #1978 2013 Midwest Stud Ram Sale
Sire: Lyn Lee 0115 (1st March ram lamb at Sedalia in 2010)
Dam: Van Dyke 821 RR

2nd Place in Class I behind the Senior Champion
 A super complete ram that travels free and has a super set of feet and legs under him. If you like them straight topped he is definately worth a look. His sire is out of the Lansing buck that bred so well for Lyn Lee Farms and his dam goes back to Luxford's "Saddle Tramp" and Cloud's "Lightning". 821 is a 5 year old and has been a consistent producing ewe for me. 1257 may not be the tallest ram at Sedalia this year but you will be hard pressed to find another ram this well balanced.
