Missouri Sheep Producers Announce the Retirement of Industry Great, Larry Mead


Heartland Livestock Services to assume management of Midwest Stud Ram Sale

SEDALIA, Missouri, October 7, 2014
– Today, the Missouri Sheep Producers, sponsors of the annual Midwest Stud Ram Sale, announced the retirement of Larry Mead. Mr. Mead, a titan of the industry, has managed the Midwest Stud Ram Sale for the last 50 years. “On behalf of the Missouri Sheep Producers, I would like to express our sincerest gratitude to Larry Mead for his more than fifty years of service,” said Henry Shultz, chairman of the Midwest Stud Ram Sale committee. “Larry has grown the Midwest Stud Ram Sale into the largest purebred sheep sale in North America – a tremendous accomplishment.” “Larry Mead has played a key role in the Missouri Sheep Industry. We appreciate all the time and effort he put into both the Missouri Sheep Producers organization and Midwest Stud Ram Sale,” said Sarah Gehring, president, Missouri Sheep Producers. Beginning immediately, Heartland Livestock Services will assume management of the nearly $2 million annual purebred sheep and goat sale. The Heartland team has a combined 100 years of experience in the livestock industry, members include: Curt Overcash of Ottawa, IL, Karey Claghorn of Milo, IA, Bret Oelke of Barrett, MN, Millie Moore of Indianola, IA, Brandan Bruce of Indianola, IA, and Carrie Taylor-Kelly of Stuart, IA. Heartland Livestock Services has been vital to the operation of the Midwest Stud Ram Sale for nearly a decade. “We are thrilled to have an experienced team of professionals, who are passionate about both the sale and the industry, accept full leadership of this premier sheep event,” commented Shultz. “We look forward to creating an innovative environment in which the sale can grow and flourish over the next years and decades,” said Curt Overcash, managing partner of Heartland Livestock Services. “We are honored to have an opportunity to manage the foremost marketplace for sheep genetics in North America.” “The ability for sheep enthusiasts to interact and network at this sale makes it incredibly unique,” said Karey Claghorn of Heartland Livestock Services. “We are dedicated to improving upon this already fantastic event, as folks continue to gather from all across the country to meet and compete.”
