The goal of the Todd Family’s breeding program has always been about breeding sheep that work for anybody – purebred or commercial producers. You’ll find that our sheep will not be the tallest, nor will they be the smallest: we go to great lengths to try and breed animals that are midsized and useful for the industry. Purebred or commercial, our intent is always to increase the profit potential of our sheep for their new owners.
All our purebred sheep, Southdowns, Suffolks and more recently, Ile de France, are bred for structural correctness, muscling and growth and bred to look like the breed they are to represent, and to carry those traits into their progeny.
With our Rideau-based commercial sheep, about 75% of the brood ewes are bred to create F-1 replacements for sale to the commercial industry. These F-1 crosses produce prolific, hardy animals that are highly performance driven.
We use various management tools including GenOvis and artifical insemination in our goal towards continuous flock improvement. We have been genotype testing our rams for a number of years to ensure our flock carries the scrapie resistance traits. We will continue to do Maedi Visna tests to ensure our sheep are healthy and ready to produce for their new owners.
