Brockmann Oxfords and Double "A" Oxfords - A. Brockmann 1612 “Big Foot” is the next key breeding piece in our flock as he was the 2020 National Champion Oxford Ram at the NAILE Junior and Open Shows. We love the body, rib shape, bone size and breed characteristics of this stud ram. He is sired by our 2016 National Champion Ram, “Prairie Perfection”. “Big Foot’s” dam produced a full sister who was the 2019 Reserve Grand Champion Ewe at the National Oxford Show & Sale, and was also the high-selling ewe of the sale.

At Brockmann Oxfords, we have a small flock of 15 Oxford ewes in which we strive for quality over quantity year after year, while maintaining consistency in our breeding program. We were honored to have first place flock and premier exhibitor at the 2020 North American International Livestock Exposition. Watch for our National Show & Sale consignment. Visitors are always welcome as we love to talk to other breeders, just get ahold of Gary at 815-509-5401, Vicky, Brianna, Austin or check us out on Facebook@Brockmann Oxfords

The bold and massive, yet beautiful Champion Yearling Ewe “Ms. Rona” 1936 on the front cover of this month’s Banner represents the kind of Oxford female we strive to breed. “Ms. Rona” is no accident as her mother Perzee 1607 was Champion Oxford Ewe at NAILE in 2016. “Rona’s” great grandmother DG 6008 was Res. National Champion Ewe in 2007 at NAILE. Ms. Rona truly is backed by many high quality females. We would like to thank Cliff and Karen Perzee for letting us purchase “Ms. Rona” and their entire flock this past March. We have enjoyed the friendship and partnership over the many years.

We at Double “A” Oxfords would like to thank everyone at NAILE for all their hard work and efforts to make this past year’s show happen. We want to thank Joel Parker for all his great trimming skills to make “Rona” look so good. Also, thanks to our family and friends who all helped make this year happen.

We at Double “A” Oxfords welcome any inquiries about our sheep, visitors are always welcome. The sheep are for sale privately and at the National Sale in Springfield, Illinois.
