Our Sheep

We have 300 ewes (and growing) consisting of purebred Dorset ewes and Dorset Rideau crosses for strong maternal lines and Suffolk is used on some for terminal lambs. Our original bloodlines come from Western Canada and we are now using some rams with New Zealand and Australian blood. We are very excited about these sheep and the results they've given us. 


Our goal is to work with and create quality sheep for the Canadian sheep farmer and Canadian lamb consumer ... ewes with strong maternal instincts and year round lambing producing strong and fast growing lambs. Keeping extensive records allows evaluation of all animals through Genovis genetic evaluation numbers and BIOtrack. We aim for animals with superior EPD's (estimated progeny differences), growth indexes and maternal growth indexes. Flock health is a high priority ... keeping a closed flock except to bring in new rams from other healthy flocks. We are a Meadi Visna A status flock. Some basic flock statistics: 1.7 lambs/ewe (including ewe lambs) every 8-9 months; ADG 0-50 = 0.9lb; ADG 50-100d = 0.7lb.
