WELCOME

Welcome


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.

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 today's 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.

QUOTES

Sheep, like people, are ungovernable when hungry.
