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 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.
