White suffolk's are a breed that is primarily used for their meat. It was originally bred with the Suffolk breed, crossed with a white breed ( mainly Poll Dorset ). The White Suffolk is the ideal prime lamb terminal sire. The White Suffolk has been developed in Australian conditions therefore is giving outstanding results in the dry, arid areas, and also in the higher rainfall districs of Australia. White Suffolk rams have a natural high fertility rate and can be mated at any time of the year. The result of the rams having high fertility rate is that hardy robust lambs are produced. The ewes also have minimal lambing problems because of the smooth functional shape of the White Suffolk.The White Suffolk breed is known for smaller and smoother shoulders which assist in easier lambing and less losses at birth.
At Elisabeth Murdoch College we have a mob of breeding White Suffolk ewes that are bred each year to produce lambs. At the college our main aim is to learn about the enterprise's we are commited to and to be able to eventually put something back into the Agriculture community.
As part of a way to inteact with other sheep breeders we attended local shows each year and exhibt our sheep to not only the agriculture community but the general public. It is a great way to learn new skills and meet new people.
