A small group of pedigree Suffolk Sheep comprising 3 rams and 1 ewe were exported recently to the Niedersachsen region of Northern Germany. The German buyers toured the country in search of suitable breeding stock and eventually selected the sheep from the Kersey Flock which has been run by the Partridge family since its establishment in 1927. Chris Partridge said “the Germans were looking for performance recorded Suffolk Sheep with good confirmation, tight skins and not too much bone – just our type!” After the necessary blood tests, veterinary inspections and paperwork were completed the sheep eventually left in early August arriving in Germany in time for the new breeding season. This is thought to be the first export of stock from the Kersey Flock in its 84 year history.
