Raising Suffolks since 1950

Welcome to Lost River Livestock

The flock was established in 1950 with two ewe lambs from the oldest and most well known flock in the nation - that being Green Valley, Fred and Marion Coble. Our flock now consists of 35 foundation ewes that are selected for milkability, longevity, mothering, records, pedigrees and soundness.

Lost River Livestock

 

All ewes are measured, weighted and graded and the flock is on the
National Sheep Improvement Program.
Because all ewes are vaccinated and codon tested,
the health of our flock is impeccable.

Alls have been
ram tested and are NN, the flock is foot rot free and
CERTIFIED SCRAPIE FREE.
All rams are guaranteed and semen checked.

 

"Gun Slinger" is QR and was AI'ed to all ewes being RR. I did not fair very well.  Only getting three rams being RR out of twelve. I was one of the first to be Certified Scrapie Free in the US.  Don't miss out on using a QR ram that has great conformation and pedigree.  Scrapie is about a thing of the past.  I don't select for RR genes I use the best ram possible on my reputation flock no matter if he is RR or QR.  Bret Oelke was here from Minnesota a week ago and said what a uniform group of lambs from "Gun Slinger".  I have predictability in my flock from years and years of selection of the same traits and ewe families.
