“Master Touch”Kleinert 4860Kleinert 4690 (Picasso) x Kleinert 4596 (K-4509) Folks, this one gets us pretty excited! A little more moderate than what we usually set in stud, but he’s as powerful as they come. Truly massive through his hip and stifle, yet so square and athletic in how he uses his hock. He works that same advantage through his front end while being so smooth shouldered and elevated in his chest. The perfect combination of power and pretty. We all know the success that Miller Hampshires has had in consistently producing champions over the years. Here’s a ram that’s bred with those same quality genetics, yet can be used as an outcross to those popular Miller Maker and 40 Large bloodlines.
