Sandage Farms -
On the cover is Sandage KF200, our lead yearling this year — he sells at the Midwest Stud Ram Sale. This RRNN stud is sired by SF Floyd and out of a SchamWOW X Mystery Pup ewe. Also pictured are two Floyd daughters, Barry Bruce’s top 2021 ewe lamb and our high seller at the 2021 Illinois Bred Ewe Sale.

The next step in our slow march to reduce ewe numbers is a flock reduction sale at Sedalia. Featuring three top stud bucks, including SF Floyd, our top SF Pretty Boy-son out of a Kansas daughter. He is line bred, as Pretty Boy is out of Kansas’ grand dam. We will also have two ewe lambs by him consigned.

SF Carry On also sells, our top Kansas son out of a Styx daughter. He is level, thick, and super boned!

Finally is Wicked Easy (named after one of my favorite beers), the most elevated of the three; he will add super pretty front ends and frame for his new owner. Sired by our great fall born SchamWOW son, Number TWO, he is also out of a Kansas daughter.

We are also offering approximately ten brood ewes by sires listed above, as well as by Too Tall Too, SchamWOW and Hoskins 18-26.

We also plan to bring a couple yearling ewes exposed to Hoskins 19-27 for fall lambs and a couple with late April lambs at side.

Some great genetics here that would never leave the farm if we weren’t trying to ease up!
