providing a useful guide to the history of the 'Suffolk Sheep" this collection of books was previously the property of a Kent flock owner during the years covered by the run. (One volume has been held back by their daughter as a memento) The Suffolk is one of our oldest, native British breeds and has been in existence since the late 1700's. Suffolks were originally developed in England as the result of crossing Southdown rams on Norfolk Horned ewes. The product of this cross was an improvement over both parent breeds. The breed Society (now run from Galgorm, Ballymena, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland) was originally formed in 1886 and so 2016 marks their 130th 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.
