Rideau Arcott Sheep

Rideau Arcott sheep

 

The Rideau Arcott is a purebred sheep which was created entirely in Canada. It was developed over a period of 10-15 years by Agriculture Canada at the research station near Ottawa. The original genetics came from the Finnish Landrace, Suffolk and East Friesian breeds. After many generations of selection, the new breed was released to Canadian producers in the late 1980's. The purpose of the Rideau Arcott development program was to produce a maternal breed that would offer high fertility, good milking and mothering characteristics, excellent body conformation and good growth rate.

Rideaus are highly prolific ewes, reaching sexual maturity at 7-8 months of age and excel in crossbreeding programs with terminal sire breeds which emphasize meat production. Due to the large number of multiple births, the Rideau does require additional attention to nutrition and lambing time management.

 

Le Arcott Rideau est un mouton de race pure qui a été entièrement créé au Canada. Il a été développé sur une période de 10 à 15 ans à la station de recherche d'Agriculture Canada près d'Ottawa. La génétique originale est venue principalement des races Finnois, Suffolk et East Friesian. Après plusieurs générations de sélection, la nouvelle race a été rendue disponible aux producteurs canadiens à la fin des années 1980. Le but du programme de développement du Arcott Rideau était de produire une race maternelle qui offrirait une haute fertilité, de bonnes caractéristiques laitières et maternelles, une excellente conformation et un bon taux de croissance.

Les Rideau sont des brebis très prolifiques. Elles atteignent la maturité sexuelle vers l'âge de 7 à 8 mois. Ces brebis donnent d'excellents résultats lorsque croisées avec un bélier de race terminale,dans le but de favoriser la production de viande. En raison du grand nombre de naissances multiples, le Rideau exige beaucoup d'attention supplémentaire pour l'alimentation et pendant la période d'agnelages.
