Suffolk Sheep


Suffolks were the result of crossing Southdown rams with Norfolk Horned ewes.  In 1913 one ram and six ewes were imported to Canterbury to meet requirements in the meat trade - high flesh to fat ratio.  Suffolks are now the most dominant sheep meat breed in the world. 

Their wool is bulky and has excellent thermal qualities for use in bedding and garments.
