Chapman Rambouillets -
On The Cover
Featured on the front cover of the June/July issue of The Banner is Chapman 6097 RR. He is sired by Clyde Peterson 4274, the top certifying ram on the 2019 Dakota Ram Test. At the American Rambouillet Sheep Breeders Association (ARSBA) Online Sale Chapman 6097 made breed history becoming one of the top five highest selling Rambouillet Rams ever sold at public auction. Repeat customers, Chris, Judith, Josef, and Johan Grotegut of Hereford, TX purchased this ram for $8,500. The Groteguts also purchased Chapman D-943 for $3,800, the highest selling ewe from the ARSBA Online Sale.
Chapman Rambouillets is a 100+ year-old flock. In 1967, Lenard and Margaret Chapman purchased the entire Willard Warren flock, which was established in 1919. For the past 55 years, Chapman Rambouillets has raised quality breeding sheep selected for growth performance and fine wool. Today, Lenard’s grandson, Beau Chapman, manages the flock with the help of his father, Kirby, wife, Kalin and children, Maddox and Macrae.
With the goal of staying on the cutting edge in the sheep industry, Chapmans are active members of ARSBA and NSIP. Additionally, they participate in the North Dakota and Wyoming Ram Tests as another way to measure their progress and success outside of the show ring.
The Chapmans also have a small flock of Hampshire sheep rich with L&L Hampshire and Bobendrier Hampshire breeding. The Chapman family is also excited about their Hampshire Stud 675, who claimed the Supreme Champion Ram title at the North Dakota State Fair in 2021!
