We caught up with the breeder of the Grand Champion Market Lamb at the 2023 New Mexico State Fair. We invite you to read our candid interview with Middlesworth Club Lambs below and please continue to check back often for our next edition of “Breeder Spotlight.”
What’s the pedigree of your champion?
Father Figure x Anger Management. He sold in our first bid board sale to Chad Walker.
What makes your operation run smoothly?
Everyone working together as a family & team.
How many head do you run?
450 head of blackface & speckle face ewes.
Do you have another job besides raising sheep? If so, what’s your occupation?
Perry & Lori have alway farmed corn, soybeans and hay while raising sheep and a few cattle.
In your opinion, who has been the most influential ram across the industry?
What’s your favorite livestock show?
Do you prefer online sales or live sales?
We do our spring ram lamb sale online and our spring wether & ewe sales in a private online format, because we want people to come see them in person and if we get pictures of the 10 or so ewes & bucks we sell that is plenty of pictures for us!
