Online Sales on Monday June 20


Welcome to our 1st Online Formula for Champions Sale, June 20 at www.wlivestock.com.

In response to requests from people who normally purchase Slack Sheep in Sedalia at the Midwest Stud Ram Sale, we have decided to offer these ewes in an online sale.

Our plan was to have this sale earlier in the year, but we just finally got all of the photos and information together. The photos were taken several weeks ago, so the sheep have grown, developed and thickened up considerably. If you like the pictures, you will like the sheep even better in person.

Tom will probably be baling during the week of Sedalia. With all the rain, there hasn't been a good window to even get first cutting. We bale over 100 acres, so we are hoping in the next two weeks the weather will cooperate.

There is a lot of buzz about the dwarf gene these days. In an effort to be proactive Tom has tested all of the lambs out of Sicario. Those lambs are the only ones that have been tested for the dwarf gene. Sicario is the only ram we have used that is a known carrier. We have tested 20 of our straight Slack rams used over the past few years. All of them tested FF, so we are assuming the Slack flock is predominately clean.
That's great news for our buyers over the past several years. The chances are good that most all of those sheep we have sold are non-carriers.

In the past six years, we have hauled 410 head of sheep to sell at the Midwest Stud Ram Sale. As far as we know they should be non-carriers. We have not tested all of our sheep, but we are making an effort to, at minimum, test the rams we use. We would encourage anyone concerned about the dwarf gene, to test, no matter where you purchase. Getting the test done is the only sure way to know what your genetics are doing.

We are pretty excited about our online sale offering. We hope that you enjoy seeing this sample of what we have available. If you don't see what you are looking for, contact us. We have rams and ewes of all ages available. The aged ewes are sorted and ready to go to work in a new flock. Thanks for your interest in our genetics.
