Welcome to Parker Stock Farm

Breed Information: suffolk

Lean Meat

 With renowned carcass conformation and lean meat content, suffolk are efficient feed converters that thrive within the controlled management environment of small farms and acreages.

These characteristics provide for efficient production that results in the highest economic returns in the industry.

 Suffolk continue to be the dominant sheep breed in Canada by  demonstrating  exceptional rate of gain, predominancy for twins, ability for passing on traits in valuable meat production, and commanding higher prices in the heavy lamb market 

Parker Livestock

 Parker lambs are tattooed before they leave the jugs. Additional identification is accomplished by applying their RFID tag and a metal ketchum tag. All identifiers are cross referenced in our farm management program.
