The Rideau Arcott-         Genetics & Our Flock

Whispering Cedars Ranch had the opportunity to buy a well established Rideau Arcott flock. We have 9 years of records using EweBytes, 3 years with FarmWorks and each ewe is a Registered Purebred with the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation (CLRC).

We encourage you to have a look at our flock on the CLRC website using this link:

Our ewes are bred for accelerated lambing (3 lamb crops in 2 years). We aggressively cull ewes with any mothering or breeding issues, which allows us to improve our already superior genetics. Our flock is reported and performance is evaluated with GenOvis.

Our mature ewe have a lambing average of 280-330% and many of our rams are currently in the top 10% of GenOvis, "Improve maternal qualities (heavier lambs at weaning)" and/or "Improve number of lambs born per lambing".

  

At this time, Whispering Cedars Ranch is planning substantial growth due to a recent purchase of more land. Unfortunately, we will not be offering ewe lambs in the 2021 season. We appreciate the interest in our breeding stock and encourage you to reach out to be put on our reservation list.

Breeding rams are selected based on high Expected Progeny Differences (EPD), and must meet purebred breeding soundness criteria. WCR has the ability to offer an excellent opportunity for producers to buy top producing ram lambs and yearlings from our flock to grow and improve their genetics. WCR now offers semen for purchase from exceptional sires.
