Tickets are now on sale for the National Poultry Show

Despite three years of cancellations, one of North America’s premier poultry trade shows, The National Poultry Show (NPS), is finally taking place at the Western Fair District Agriplex in London, Ontario on Wednesday, February 8th and Thursday, February 9th, 2023.

NPS brings together the best in the poultry industry with the latest in poultry technology, innovations, and education.

This must-attend event is a partnership between the Poultry Industry Council (PIC) and the Western Fair Association (WFA).

Funds go towards helping the PIC create new resources, programs, and educational sessions for the entire poultry sector.

“The PIC and WFA team are more than ready to see this show be a complete success and we have been feeling that high level of support from the industry as well,” says Ashley Honsberger, Executive Director of PIC. “We really look forward to seeing everyone at the show this February.”

Sheep Farming: Adapting To Change

Video: Sheep Farming: Adapting To Change

Today at Ewetopia Farms, we have a lot of sheep that needed to adapt to change. Firstly, we had a first-time ewe, Cami, who had a ewe lamb which she was quite nervous about nursing. Sometimes young ewes need to learn to get used to the feeling of nursing and having a new baby. We also moved another group of lambs over to the Coveralls including the bottle baby group. These bottle babies had to not only adjust to a new barn, but also had to learn where the new bottle holder was and how to get in there. We also released another lamb into the family group so he also had to adapt to new living conditions. Adaptations are part of life on a sheep farm and it is fun to watch and see how everyone copes.

Sheep and sheep farming is our passion and we hope that the love we have for what we do is obvious to you the viewers. Our operation is a large scale, registered Suffolk and Poll Dorset sheep farm combining the best of pasture and confinement to manage the flock for maximum comfort, minimal stress, and producing a consistent, very high quality product. Our focus is on providing breeding stock for sale to other sheep producers. All our sheep are treated with the utmost compassion which I think will become evident as you join us on our daily rounds on our working sheep farm in eastern Ontario, Canada.

I hope you enjoy this video. If you would like to follow along with us and experience life on a real live sheep farm on a daily basis, please subscribe so that you don't miss a single episode!
