Here at Prolific Acres, we raise 3 types of sheep for Breeding Stock as well as producing Premium Grain-Fed Lamb for
consumption. We finish all our lambs on non-GMO grains.
Our flock is MV Test Negative
- "Lambs by the Litter"
The Romanovs are a pure gene (not crossed with anything). They
are the only breed of sheep that reliably breeds ALL YEAR ROUND. They regularly produce twins & triplets, sometimes
more......depending on how often you lamb them and how you feed them.
The Romanov rams are the most active breeders
of any breed of sheep, year round, therefore make the best "Teasers" for synchronizing your flock's breeding
and lambing time.
Ile de France
In July '09 we added Ile
de France to our repertoire. They impressed us with their 4" - 5" square loin eye, out of season breeding
ability, being very broody dams, having superior muscling and a lambing average of 180%. So, in addition to the
ram we already had, we purchased 10 Registered IDF sheep from John Barnett of Kingsville at his dispersal sale. Unfortunately
there are very few purebred breeders of this breed in Canada, and John was the main one in Ontario. We are breeding
pure to build female Registered numbers. I have 4 sire lines, and all are very, very impressive. The dams
are also very meaty, wide, boxy and quite long bodied as well. We sell Registered IDF Ram lambs every year and
sell out very quickly!
IDF Rams also make for excellent Terminal sires. They are very diligent breeders,
with high libido and put plenty of meat on the lambs!
have some Booroola gene carrying sheep, which is a gene in their DNA that causes them to have 1.1 more lambs at each lambing.
We have some IDF Booroola ewe & Ram Lambs available each year. This gene can be put into any breed you desire
to increase lambing percentages of your flock. We never mix Romanov with the Booroola genetics.
We keep very strict records here on our farm. We feel the details are important.
We do an annual MV Test on
the whole flock. We have ZERO positive animals.
Please feel free to ask questions about our sheep anytime.
I am always willing to help a new shepherd in finding the information they require to aid them in their new quest.
