Fritz Southdowns is synonymous for success when it comes to showing southdown. Whether you are looking for your next competitive lamb, a starter flock of southdown ewes, or a southdown ram that will help put you on the map, Fritz Southdowns is the place the go. They are located at 858 Cactus Ridge Road, just 9 miles west of Fredericksburg, TX off of US Hwy 290. Once you enter the ranch their passion becomes evident as the private roads leading to their barns are marked "Southdown Lane" and "Champions Drive". Kevin and Susan are always ready and available to help with your southdown needs, in addition to their daughter Katie and her husband Ty Klepac. It doesn't matter the reason for your visit, they will be willing to help if you just ask.
Attention to detail is what sets Fritz Southdowns apart from other competitors. Constant evaluation and development of their southdown rams is the utmost priority on their list. They usually keep close to 50 southdown rams available, ready to go into service at any time. They monitor the market closely to stay attuned to developing trends and changes. Breed character is another attribute they critique on a regular basis.
At Fritz Southdowns the relationship does not end with the purchase. The family will tell you that the most rewarding aspect of their business is getting to work with kids and developing relationships with the families. Nothing is more satisfying to them than to see their feeders get the dot at a major show, or to enter that ring for a championsip drive, because at Fritz Southdowns "winning is a tradition". They are willing to carry that relationship further by providing advice and leadership on feeding and nutrition, housing and exercise, showmanship, and health, or if you just want to talk sheep. Susan has an onsite veterinary clinic next to the house to deal with your small ruminant needs.
