“If you don’t have a Tailwind Ewe you better get one”

Tailwind Farm specializes in producing high quality registered Rambouillet for the purebred and commercial lamb producer.

Buyers of Tailwind Farm Rambouillets can expect, due to genetic selection via NSIP records, that their purchased animals will perform in the showring or as seedstock.

Our registered flock selection is based on production of pounds of lamb and fine wool. We have kept records since 1978. Traits such as: mothering ability, multiple births, out-of-season lambing, hardiness, longevity and milk production.  In 2019 we enrolled in the National Sheep Improvement Program and added records all the way back into 2012.  In addition we purchased the UW-Wisconsin Rambouillet foundation ewe flock also with NSIP records and Benz NSIP genetics.  Our most recent stud ram and ewe additions have come from the Chapman NSIP flock featuring Osmond (Utah),and Dr. Jay Bobb (dispersed) genetics.  Tailwind Farms 43 year history can be traced in pedigrees of top purebred and commercial flocks.  Success stands the test of time as we have many repeat buyers of multiple rams.
