The Suffolk Sheep Society,
Unit 19, Ballymena Business Centre,
Co. Antrim, BT42 1FL
The Suffolk is one of our oldest, native British breeds and has been in existence since the late 1700’s. The breed Society was originally formed in 1886 and so 2011 marked our 125th anniversary.
The Suffolk is renown as a terminal sire breed and remains No 1 for growth rate as proven by numerous independent scientific studies. This ability to grow and finish quickly is essential in a falling market and Suffolk lambs can also be taken to heavier carcase weights, if required. Increasing numbers of commercial producers now include Suffolk genetics in their ewe flocks as the breed has high milk output, hard hooves and wide pelvic dimensions for easy lambing.
If you are tired of soft and/or slow-growing lambs or ewes that have unacceptable levels of udder and feet problems, why not use a Suffolk instead?
If you would like to become a member of the Society you can do so by downloading and sending us the application form, which can be found under - Society / Join the Society.
