Genetics - Our maternal line flock is a stabilized commercial crossbred originally sourced from the high-health facility at the University of Guelph in 1998. We keep track of 12 different ram family lines and 600 of the elite flock ewes are GENOVIS performance recorded. The data is collected using RFID radio frequency identification technology.  All of this information is quickly accessible on the farm computer using the Ewebyte computer program.  All flock production data is regularly submitted to the GENOVIS Program.

 

Transportation is to be arranged and paid for by the buyer. We must ask for a 10% non refundable deposit to hold your order. Please place your orders early to avoid disappointment.
