Our own sheep farm, in the Netherlands, was one of the first farms to be used for grazing projects, grazing areas such as city parks, dykes, nature reserves, road side ditches and military grounds. Our company had a number of employees and grew into a thriving vegetation control company. We were involved in direct marketing of our lambs and learn't how the meat industry functions.
With our desicion to move to Alberta, we sold our company in Netherlands and have started up our sheep and cattle ranch in northern Alberta.
Louise Liebenberg has a Bachelor of Science degree. Louise has been involved with a number of organizations and breeding programs. Our flock of sheep in the Netherlands was a rare sheep breed, Louise got involved with the Rare Breeds organization, making breeding plans to minimise inbreeding in small population.
