We got a mention in an article in The Star on Paleo

Posted | 0 comments

The reporter spent a fair bit of time out in the pastures shooting pictures of me with the cattle and sheep. I even risked a momma cow’s wrath by getting up close with her calf as she hovered in the background giving me not so subtle warnings that she was contemplating giving me a new orifice if I didn’t back away from her calf! I thought at least one might make the paper. Oh well, they spelled my name right. I’ve heard my pic did make the print version. The online version featured a different image. Here’s the link:  ...

Harry Stoddart: Renaissance Farmer

I did an interview with a local lifestyle magazine – Kawartha Life – a few months ago and completely forgot about it. Today I walked into my optometrist’s office (apparently grass-fed beef isn’t a miracle cure for the effects of aging on one’s eyes – I need reading glasses!) and the receptionist says, “you look a little different than in your picture.” She then handed me the new issue of Kawartha Life and there I was on the cover! Here’s a link to the article: http://issuu.com/issuuprofi/docs/kl_may_2013_web/1  ...

First Multi-coloured Lamb!

First Multi-coloured Lamb!

We’ve been working for a number of years to eliminate the environmentally damaging aspects of dyeing wool. We think we’ve almost succeeded. The lamb pictured at right is the first GMO lamb successfully expressing a gene for multi-colourism in it’s wool. We isolated the gene from a bird of paradise and inserted it in the embryo of this lamb. We need to work some more on getting solid colours but this is a good start. It will be interesting to see what we get when we cross this ram with our white ewes.
