F. W. Stone

An early importer of Shorthorn and Hereford cattle, Berkshire and Yorkshire hogs and Southdown and Cotswold sheep.

Although Mr. Stone was intensely interested in these breeds of livestock, his greatest claim to fame stems from his activities as an importer and breeder of Hereford cattle.

His Hereford herd was established from foundation stock imported in 1860. Twenty years later he had the largest herd of purebred Herefords in North America.

A portion of his original holdings later became the site of the Ontario Agricultural College.

Un des premiers importateurs de bovins de race Shorthorn et Hereford, de porcs de race Berkshire et Yorkshire et de moutons Southdown et Cotswold.

Bien que M. Stone fût très intéressé par ces races de bétail, son plus grand titre de gloire provient de ses activités d’importateur et éleveur de bovins Hereford.

Son troupeau Hereford a été établi à partir de bovins importés en 1860. Vingt ans plus tard, il avait le plus grand troupeau de Hereford de race pure en Amérique du Nord.

Une partie de ses terres est devenue plus tard le site de l’Ontario Agricultural College.
