Dean and Sharon Davidson have the largest purebred registered Jacob flock in Canada.

The couple, who run Shar-Dean Farm near Owen Sound, say they like raising sheep and the breed is in need of assistance as its numbers in Canada are minuscule.

“Sheep with multiple horns and slower growth are not in vogue on most farms but they are beautiful and their fleece offers an interesting texture with multiple colour pallets and their meat is of excellent quality,” Dean Davidson said.

Dean adds that he and Sharon would be very happy to lose the designation of largest purebred flock and encourages others to look into this unique breed.
