Emke Livestock

Emke & Wright Hampshires

Craig & Melissa have been raising hampshires since 2004 and currently operate with 50 purebred ewes. 

We started our flock with 15 ewes from Hugh & Johanne Todd and introduced some Tall Oaks Farms & Bondvale Farms blood lines. This was the foundation of our Hampshire flock.

We  continuously introduce new ram power but also continue to use our own rams to keep consistancy in our ewe base.

Our Hampshires are thick bodied easy keeping sheep that would complement any flock.

This is our new Hampshire ram purchased from Spencer Jackson. He is sired by DOA ?Earthquake? and out of a Fleener 719 daughter. This buck is real pretty headed, with nice heavy bone and real long loined. We look forward to using him on our ?moose?and ?Mio? daughters, we think he should cross very well.


Purchased from Todd Sheep Company Lucknow, Ont.  Owned in partnership  with Peak Hampshires(Aaron Gebhardt) of Walkerton, Ont.  Be sure to watch for him at the junior shows and open shows this summer with his Emke & Wright influenced flock.
