Maloy Valley Farm earned the Champion and Reserve Champion Ram honors at the 2017 West Virginia Purebred Sheep Show and Sale. Both our Champion Ram Lamb and our Reserve Champion Yearling Ram won their respective classes and both are sired by our Senior Stud Ram Powerball.
"Powerball" - He was the Champion Ram from the 2014 National Sale. Bred by Clay Hill Ranch, he was named Supreme Champion Ram at the show over all breeds.
"Maloy 150" and "Maloy 134". Two outstanding rams that exemplify the type of sheep we are striving to raise. Both of these rams are thick with heavy bone possessing excellent balance.

Our breeding program continues to produce lambs that are very correct, possess length and scale, and are heavily muscled. We sell both ram and ewe lambs. Most of our ewe lambs go to purebred flocks. Our ram lamb customers include commercial sheep producers as well as purebred flocks. We wean our lambs in late May. Weaning weights are typically 75 to 90 pounds and we do provide grain supplement prior to and for about a month after weaning. Our ram lambs, which are on grass pasture during the summer months, typically weigh 135-140 pounds in late summer. We believe in having a strong "pasture conditioned" ram to sell to our customers.
Our ewes have excellent mothering skills and possess both size and feminine breed type. We select replacement ewes from our own lambs. Mothering ability characteristics focused on are: milk production and weaning weight of the lambs.
