Jack Stothart played a major role in the development of the only breed of farm livestock to originate in Canada, the Lacombe breed of hog. He also pioneered techniques in animal breeding research which are widely used today. As the Director of Agriculture Canada's Lacombe Research Station for 22 years, he improved the quantity and quality of research until Lacombe became internationally recognized as an agricultural research center. Mr. Stothart encouraged research that was of direct benefit to the agriculture industry and believed firmly in promoting the practical application of research results.
