Mark Martin Dairy Sheep
Welcome to our dairy sheep farm. It’s a great place to work with our six children. After farming pigs for 15 years, we started milking sheep in 2012 and haven’t stopped since. Our East Friesian flock came from Alberta with a 50/ 50 EF/Lacaune ram. 2 EF rams with great milk genetics from ON and QC were added to ensure a healthy gene poole. A Lacaune ram was added in 2017 . Crossing these 2 breeds results in healthy stockier lambs and great udders. New Lacaune semen arrived in November 2017 from France. This is great news for the dairy flocks in Canada. Rams are kept from ewes with the best milk production, udder conformation, teat placement, legs and feet. We have the A status in the Maedi Visna program. There is a big demand for sheep milk.
