Here at Viking Show Lambs and Genetics, we are very proud to show off our flock of top, progeny tested reference sires in Indiana! We also have top-recorded dams, high-quality market sires, stud rams, ram lambs, and club lambs for sale.

Take a look below for a brief introduction to the progeny test sires we currently have on our farm.
White Rock x Trunk
Sire of the Champion FWX – 2013 Houston
Marcantel 43 x Scorcher Daughter
Bred by Ben and Bob Marcantel – We purchased Creole from Allen and Christy Johnson.Creole is sired by Marcantel 43, and out of a Scorcher daughter that came from Mike Stitzlein. We look forward to Creole siring lambs that are flat and wide in their hips and perfect in their rib shape. The Creole lambs are structurally correct with a great combination of muscle and balance, making them competitive at the highest levels. Creole daughters have also been very productive, producing some of the most competitive, highest-selling wethers over the last 3 years for Johnson Show Lambs. We anticipate Creole being the perfect complement to the exciting set of Super Duty and Horseshoe daughters we retained this year. We also look forward to his use, along with Super Duty and Horseshoe, on our flock of over 300 ewes. The wethers below are just a few of the many winners that are sired by Creole.
Rumor x Masterpiece
Purchased from David Garrett in May of 2009 – We are retaining 35 daughters from the ’10 lamb crop, as well as 2 sons. His record speaks for himself and we know that he will be a valuable addition to anyone’s flock. Thanks to Tony Plank of Walton, IN for purchasing 1/2 interest in this proven stud buck!
