Atoka Lamb - Quality is our Key

At Atoka Lamb, quality is our goal. Since 1992, when we began raising hair sheep by purchasing our foundation flock of St. Croix sheep, we have been focusing on improving the quality of our lambs. To have a wide genetic base, our flock now consists of St. Croix crosses, Romanov, Katahdin, Dorper crosses and pureblooded Dorper ewes and White Dorper rams.

Our ewes are lambing three times in two years and are producing at 175% lamb crop. They are excellent mothers, which makes for trouble-free pasture lambing with very little attention. We cull those with bad bags and bad feet. They are resistant to worms. We have wormed only an occasional ewe in the last 10 years. Our ewe lambs will give you the benefits of breeding out of season, having multiple births, and producing more pounds of lamb per ewe than other breeds.
