The Suffolk Sheep is a dual purpose breed, excelling in Terminal and Maternal traits. Suffolks finish quickly and efficiently and get lambs to factory or butchers weights sooner than any other breed. 

The Suffolk Cross Ewe has always been recognised as a top class mother and will cross with any other breed to produce a lamb for ever specification required by todays discerning customers. She is structurally sound, with excellent feet and a prolific milker, highly resistant to mastitis and long lasting. 

On the Suffolk Sheep Society stand this year we will feature Suffolk x Cheviot Ewes and three pens of Suffolk Cross Ewe Lambs comprising of Suffolk X Mule, Suffolk X Cheviot and 3/4 Suffolk. We will also have a Suffolk Stock Ram on view.

The focus this year is very much on the maternal quality’s of the Suffolk Cross Ewe.
