At Mesta Meadows our goal is to produce the finest wool possible which is ideal for artisan spinner and commercial textile applications. Everything in our program is geared to producing excellent wool quality. And this all starts with great genetics and breeding stock. Our Rambouillet breeding stock comes from the Erk Ranch in South Dakota, one of the best wool producers in the country. Our Cormo stock were selected from premium farms in Virginia and Illinois. Every year, we take a few of our best rams and offer them as breeding stock for other wool producers.
2021 Breeding Rams For Sale
For 2021 we have three great rams for sale. A mature, 2 year old registered ram from our flock sire (George Washington) and our best Ewe (both in terms of reproductive traits and wool quality), and two young cross rams which would make tremendous additions for a small farm flock.
Your welcome to come out and visit us to see our rams.
Premier Registered Ram
Millard Filmore (KY29) has a large frame, excellent wool quality, and he is ready to go to work! At two and a half years old - he will just be entering his prime this breeding season!

Excellent wool quality - 22.7 micron with a 99.7 comfort factor.
Best of Both Worlds
William Howard Taft (KY 59) is a Cormo / Rambouillet cross. We were target super fine wool quality, and we achieved it - in fact, he has better wool stats than most ewes. We expect he will be a smaller frame ram consistent with his Cormo genetics.
