TK Ranch

Rack of Lamb

Grass-fed & Finished Lamb

On TK Ranch, we believe in managing not only our animals with respect, but their predators too. Predators have an important role to play in our ecosystem, they help keep species in check — like Richardson's Ground Squirrels (gophers) — that can damage hay crops and pastures. Developing strategies that allow us to raise our sheep on large tracts of wild prairie can be challenging — especially if you don't want to shoot or poison coyotes. We selected Rambouillet and Columbia Ewes because they are a large breed of wool sheep that have excellent flocking characteristics — they stick together like glue. This, coupled with bonding livestock guardian dogs to our sheep (like Coca pictured below at right) makes managing predators much easier. Our five guardian dogs stay with our sheep 24/7. While they are friendly to people, they by-far prefer sheep; they only leave their flock to chase off predators. They do this strategically with two dogs staying with the flock at all times. We also limit problems with predators by lambing in the late spring and summer months when there are other prey animals available to predators like rabbits, gophers, voles and mice.

Our lambs are finished at about eight months of age making them available in the late winter. We have a relatively small flock of ewes which makes our lamb supply somewhat limited, so please take advantage of our grass-fed and finished lamb offering while you can!

Animal Welfare Approved -grassfed-Thanks again for your continued support. We greatly appreciate it.

All the best,
