WHY WE BREED SUFFOLKS

 

  • Suffolk Rams can produce a 30 kg to 35 kg lamb carcass, while still at 2 to 3 fat score.
  • Suffolks are adaptable: outstanding in dry areas where high fertility rams work well even in hot summer conditions and thrive in wet conditions with their hard black feet, having immunity to foot diseases.
  • The clean face, crutch and points of the Suffolk minimise fly strike.
  • Hardy constitution gives high resistance to internal parasites.
  • Lambs sired by Suffolk rams are born with narrow heads and smooth shoulders and are very strong at birth, minimising lambing problems, loss of life and husbandry supervision.
  • Suffolk rams have tremendous libido and greater activity means the ram to ewe percentage can be reduced. More lambs can be dropped in a shorter period. Less rams needed - less management time.
  • Suffolk rams are not only very active workers, but are renowned for longevity, thus reducing replacement to a minimum.

Suffolk rams are renowned for producing multiple births, early maturing lambs,
ease of identification, management and economic cost production,
resistance to skin cancer.
