Sheep

Although sheep are an ideal choice for small holdings, there are also large commercial sheep enterprises in Eastern Ontario. A significant percentage of this production is sold at the farm gate, in farmer's markets and to local restaurants.Wool and milk are smaller sources of farm income.

Ontario has the largest breeding flock in Canada, accounting for 33% of the national breeding flock.

Most sheep farmers have off-farm income, and most Ontario sheep farms operate as combined indoor/pasture operation, lambing under sheltered conditions in late winter and spring.
