The following biographical information appeared Guelph Mercury published in Guelph, Ontario, 12 November 1897:
Henry Arkell
Sketch of Canada’s Foremost Oxforddown Sheep Breeder
November 12th 1897


Farming magazine for this month has an excellent portrait of this noted sheep breeder in Puslinch, with the following sketch of his life and his great success as a breeder of his famed Oxford Downs:

We have much pleasure in presenting to the readers of “Farming” this week a sketch of the life of Mr. Henry Arkell, of Farnham Farm, Arkell, Ontario. Mr. Arkell was born on the farm on which he now resides in 1854. He is the youngest son of the late Thomas Arkell, who settled on the present homestead in 1831, when it was a dense woods. Farnham Farm consists of 300 acres of well tilled land and is situated about five miles east of Guelph, near Arkell Station, on the Guelph branch of the C.P.R.

Mr. Arkell has come by his love of sheep honestly, for his father was a successful breeder of Cotswolds before him, and naturally as a boy he learned the successful methods followed by his father in handling sheep. When Mr. Arkell started for himself he bred Cotswolds for a time, and bred side by side with them, Oxford Down sheep. In 1882, he visited some of the best sheep farms in England, and made a selection of fifty head of Cotswolds and also fifty Oxfords from some of the best flocks in England. He kept both flocks on his farm for some years, but having an opportunity of disposing of his entire flock of Cotswolds at a good figure, he sold out, as he believed that his land was better adapted for raising Oxfords. Besides, he believed that he could do better by confining his efforts to Oxfords alone. Since then he has bred and handled them very extensively, gradually increasing his flock year by year. Last year he had on his farm over four hundred Oxford Down sheep of all ages.

Having been brought up among sheep, Mr. Arkell understands them thoroughly, and no doubt this knowledge, together with natural love of a good sheep, his good judgement, sound business sense, and personal supervision, for he is his own shepherd, have all contributed to place him in the front rank of sheep breeders in Canada. Mr. Arkell has been very successful in the show ring. For many years, his sheep swept everything before them at our larger shows. At the World’s Fair at Chicago in 1893 he secured nine prizes with his Oxfords. The year before, he won a $100 prize at Detroit for the ten best mutton sheep and the sweepstakes for the best ewe on the ground. Since 1893 he has not exhibited, although his sheep found their way to the front in the show ring on different occasions. He fits for show purposes between thirty and forty every year for his many customers.

The Americans are Mr. Arkell’s best customers, and with the sheep men of the Western States, he has worked up an extensive trade. Last fall, Mr. Arkell took a trip among his customers in the Western States and saw for himself the results of the Oxford Down cross on the range sheep. The results have been wonderfully good, thus proving the adaptability of the Oxfords for crossing upon common sheep. The progeny from these range sheep are hardy, attain to a good size, mature quickly, and produce a good quality of wool.

Mr. Arkell was a director of the Puslinch Agricultural Society for seventeen years and President for one year. For five years, he was a director of the Guelph Central Exhibition, and for a like period, a director of the Fat Stock Show. His business has been growing so extensively of late, and as he is his own shepherd, looking personally after his flock, he has found it necessary to retire from all public positions and give his whole attention to his work. He still retains, however, his connection with the Dominion Sheep Breeders’ Association, of which he is a director, and an enthusiastic member. The Superintendent of Farmers’ Institutes has tried to secure Mr. Arkell’s services as a delegate to the Farmers’ Institute meetings to talk on sheep. He has a high appreciation of the work done by the Farmers’ Institute system, and thinks that with it and with the help of such an agricultural paper as “Farming”, the day is coming when the farmers of this country will be recognized as they ought to be, the very backbone of our fair Canada.5


The following biographical information appeared, 1906:
