Thank you to our suppliers!
  
  
Our main suppliers when it comes to the management of our sheep:

Wool Growers Canada


They supply CSIP tags which are mandatory for all sheep that leave the farm and needed for sheep registered with the BBSAI
 
Four Rivers Co op


We shop local for our fencing and building supplies. We purchase most of our waterers, feeders, etc here. We also purchase all our needles, syringes, and vaccines from them. We are fortunate to be able to source most of our supplies locally.
We run 4' Farm Fence for our sheep with a strand of barbed wire across the top. Areas where we move them through we fence a little higher, on the edge of caution, and use covered catch pens as they can be jumpers. We have not had an issue with one clearing the fence yet. 
 
Premier 1 Supplies


We order in our lamb tags and farm tags from Premier 1 Supplies. The price and quality of these tags exceed anywhere else we have gotten them to date. All our lambs receive a small brass tag at birth, so we have numbered records of what lambs belong to which ewes.  Our breeding animals once selected receive a farm ID number. Although I can tell everyone apart on the pasture, my husband needs the numbered reference. It also makes it easier for keeping track when we have outside help from workways on our farm.
 

All our feed comes from local farmers. Our hay is sourced locally in Vanderhoof as well as whole oats we use for finishing lambs and flushing ewes. We purchase mixed rations from a farmer located in Smithers for our poultry and waterfowl. We take pride in knowing where the feed comes from that we put into our animals.
 

We also have a good relationship with our local veterinarian Dr. Ebbot, in the Vanderhoof Veterinary Clinic. There is a shortage of veterinarians that work with sheep and his willingness to research and work with the farmers here is great.
