Crooked Creek Farm
We are a 40-acre farm raising sheep for fiber and meat. Our sheep are of mixed heritage with Suffolk, Rambouillet, Finn, and Cormo, creating an interesting mix with good meat and wool qualities. Our sheep are maintained on pasture from May until November, and are fed good quality legume hay throughout the winter months. A mineral/salt supplement is provided. Ewes are fed a pelleted grain ration for a few weeks before lambing and for a few weeks after.

What is HCW?
Hot carcas weight (HCW) is the weight taken immediately after slaughter, but before final trim. With beef for example, HCW is approximately 60% of live weight.
