The Best Kept Secret in North Carolina with a consistent
winning tradition for the last 10 years!

Fall lambs are here! A few are ready to go--call soon! Check out our new winners!

Thank you for your interest in Brasfield Dorsets and Club Lambs.  We are located in the foothills of North Carolina, just 20 minutes northwest of Winston-Salem.  Our family has been actively raising and showing quality Dorsets and club lambs since 1986.  We have a tradition of raising quality lambs for 4-H and FFA projects, as well as ewes and rams for the purebred and commercial producers.

Our goal is to produce genetically sound and functional sheep that will perform well in both the pasture and in today's competitive showring.  We run approximately 100 ewes.  We have fall lambs available.

This year we are proud to offer a quality set of wether prospects, ewe lambs and rams for sale privately at the farm.  Inquiries and visitors are always welcome.


Fall Lambs are here; Grand and Reserve Champion

in the industry. His grandsire is "Trifecta" Hewlett 976,
" Grand Cayman" ( Grand Duke X Hambone) X "Grand".
"Better Bet" is a son MCL TRI 04 ( Dailey Double) and his
dam is MCL CH02 a " Chronic" daughter from McQuinley

"TENNESSEE STUD"
Sold to Jimmy Osborne, Va
RRNN; purchased from Dave Whitaker of Tenn;
A “Boone” son- “True Blood X Exile” bred by Wheaton;
Tennessee Stud is a carbon copy of his sire Boone. His volume and quality of muscle are outstanding. He possesses extreme length from flank to flank and his touch is amazing. Picture taken at two years of age.
Thanks again to Dave Whitaker for working with us on this great one.



"CORRECT CHANGE"

Deceased
CORRECT CHANGE is a son of TANK out of an ULTRA ewe. TANK was bred by Bruce Achor and sired by Hancock a LEVERAGE son out of INTENSE'S dam ( she is half sister to ULTRA). ULTRA is the Hancock/Whitacker buck that has had so much success.

Thanks to Keith Odom for working with us to acquire CORRECT CHANGE. Co-owned with Cecil King


"STEP UP" ( Huntrods 1026)
RRNN
Pictured as a yearling. STEP UP is a Dorset buck that should keep our Dorset program moving in the right direction. He is tied together very well in his front end. STEP UP has tremendous spring of rib with a monster rack, shallow chested and finishes with a tremendous hip. We expect this buck to stamp his lambs with adequate muscle, correctness and consistency as the Huntrod's flock is known for.

Thanks to Mark Huntrod for selling us such a quality Dorset buck.

"PR"
deceased
Harms RL-W375
RR/NN
"PR" is one of the most powerful sheep we've ever seen!  He's packed full of muscle, a Johnson trademark, yet he still maintains that youthful appearance Harms' sheep have been known for.  He was sired by "RE-Load", Johnson 5557, and dammed by SB 5, the twin sister to "Power Horse" and mother to "Double Power".  Thank you Emilou Phelps, Rabbit Cross Farms, for allowing us first refusal of "PR".
