Forty years, countless champions, over thirty-seven hundred lambs through the sale ring, and more friends than you can imagine. Who would have dreamed that the Formula for Champions Sale would grow into the largest annual club lamb sale East of the Mississippi offered by one producer? And who could predict that the next generation of showmen would look forward to attending the “FFC” with a parent who had won with a Slack lamb years before?

Through the years the sheep have changed, trends have come and gone, and we have experienced decreases in sheep numbers nationwide. What has been constant is our desire to raise the best lambs that we can to fit your needs. Our flock has expanded to include Hampshires, Dorsets, Dorset Advantage, Shropshire, Suffolk, Natural Color and Crossbred lambs to cover shows that show by breed. And during these years we have held true to our mission of raising the “complete meat sheep,” while you continued to support us.

Thank you for 40 great years. We appreciate all of your visits, reports of success, and notes. But most of all we value your friendship and your appreciation of heavy-boned, structurally-correct, meaty sheep. We look forward to working with you for many more years.

Walton webcasting will be shooting a video of most of the lambs on the headrack this year.
It will play prior to our sale beginning around 12:30 pm EST. It will show rear shots and lot numbers on the lambs.
We plan to play this video several times prior to the beginning of the sale which starts at 1:30 pm EST.
We hope this will give buyers a better opportunity to view the lambs before they go in the sale ring.
