Because you WILL care if there is ever a traceback and CFIA is deciding the fate of your sheep. Using a QR or RR genotyped ram will instill a level of scrapie resistance in your flock.
Parker Stock Farm has been ebrolled in the Scrapie Flock Certification Program since 2013 and has achieved CERTIFIED status.
This means that you can purchase breeding stock from us and be confident that they are scrapie free. All sale animals are genotyped for your information. Participation in the Scrapie Flock Certification program is just one part of the biosecurity program in place at Parker Stock Farm.
