Pedigree Suffolk Sheep

Flock History

 

We started breeding Suffolks as we realised that there was a massive demand for the breed particularly in the North East of Scotland, however many commercial farmers were unhappy with the rams that they were buying. Therefore we made the decision to breed a Suffolk flock which maintains the obvious benefits of the breed with exceptional growth rates and killing out percentage, whilst being as low maintenance a sire as possible.

We have selected animals which have been easy lambing, shown good vigour and mothering ability, whilst also possessing incredible growth rate and muscling. We have used the rams on some of our own commercial ewes and the way in which their offspring have performed is truly unbelievable. The lambs require minimal assistance at birth and they are growing out of their skins, with the fleshing qualities they possess easily visible to the eye. The average EBV`s of our 101 lambs born in 2014 are 8 week weight - top 1%, Scan weight top 1%, Muscle Depth - top 1 %, terminal sire index - top 1% and maternal index top 5% of the breed.

TESTIMONIAL: Barbara Milne, Aberdeenshire - “The best Suffolk ram we have used in a long time!!  He caused minimal problems at lambing time with his progeny being easy to lamb and having great vigour! The ram has grown on well and didn't lose any condition  when tupping or throughout the tough winter. He will certainly be fit to tup  a lot of ewes again this season.”
