Every year, the NLSBA hosts a national show and sale. Once again this show was held at the Great Lakes Sale in Wooster, OH on Memorial Day weekend. The show attracted breeders from 8 states. Champion ram went to Boersma Ranch with their yearling ram and Reserve Champion Ram went to Rader’s Lincolns with their spring lamb. Both Champion and Reserve Champion Ewes went to Boersma Ranch with their two yearlings. Stay tuned for information on the location of next year’s show!
This sale at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival every year is a great way to get a head start on the year with building your flock. In addition to yearling ewes, fall ewe lambs and spring ewe lambs, for the first time this year rams and ram lambs were included in the sale.
This year’s Lincoln show at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival attracted 38 white Lincolns and 83 natural colored Lincolns. The show arena was filled with many amazing sheep that well represented the Lincoln Longwool breed!
The premier exhibitor awards went to:

Additionally, Creek Road Farms won 2016 Supreme Champion Ram with their sheep “Peculiar” (Larson 15318). This ram was chosen out of over 15 different breeds to be supreme ram of the show. Congrats to the Day Family for this outstanding recognition!
