SD State Fair

Camry Murdoch’s amazing determination, perseverance and faith are as remarkable as her 2017 Nebraska State Fair Grand Champion.  Camry raised her own lamb as part of her SAE project for FFA.  She selected and purchased one ewe lamb out of the jug from Nathan Club Lambs in 2016 (Crinkle X 4D Large).  She bred the Crinkle ewe lamb to Fairwether Club Lamb’s “Centerfield" Ram  (Centerfold X Warhorse). This mating resulted in a single March born wether that won many jackpots for her in Kansas and Nebraska and the 2017 Nebraska State Fair 4-H show.  Her wether was showing so much promise in the first month of his life that she insisted on purchasing two more Crinkle daughters last April and has already bred them to Centerfield.  Camry thinks raising sheep is pretty simple.   Camry would like to thank the many wonderful people that have helped her in this endeavor and have been a blessing in her life.
