Selection of Willow Drive Flock Rams

 

South Suffolk terminal sires are renowned as virile hard working sires, they posses great libido and will keep working under the most adverse conditions. Rams can weigh up to 140kg when mature, they are known for their hardiness and good foraging ability, they have hardy black feet,  rams seem to last more years making them a viable proposition in many farming areas, including Australia's marginal areas.

Maiden ewes are the South Suffolk speciality, minimal lambing difficulties are experienced using South Suffolk sires over maiden ewes. Lambs are born with small heads & compact shoulders, have fast growth rates with uniform quality and early maturity. Lambs have clean faces & legs, so there are minimal grass seed problems.

South Suffolk Sired prime lambs for the meat trade produce a carcase with quality lean - fine textured meat . 

 

Carcase quality is exceptional - above carcases are South Suffolk Sired lambs
