Suffolk Sheep

Suffolk Sheep

 

The Suffolk was developed in the early 1800's in the southeastern area of England by crossing the Southdown and the Norfolk Horned sheep. The breed came to Canada in 1888 and interest in the breed grew rapidly after 1920. More than eighty years later it is still one of the dominant breeds in the Canadian industry. Because Suffolk lambs exceed all other breeds in rate of gain, and respond well to confinement, they offer excellent economic returns and continue to dominate the heavy lamb market in Canada. The rams are widely used as terminal sires in commercial ewe flocks due to their ability to produce lambs with excellent growth and carcass traits. The Suffolk is, however, a heavy feeder and maintaining a moderate size sheep under more controlled management systems has been advantageous in exploiting their meat traits in an economically efficient manner.

 

Le Suffolk a été développé au début des années 1800 dans la région du sud-est de l'Angleterre et est issu du croisement entre le Southdown et le Norfolk avec cornes. La race est arrivée au Canada en 1888 et l'intérêt pour cette race s'est accru rapidement après 1920. Plus de quatre-vingts ans plus tard c'est toujours une des races dominantes de l'industrie canadienne. Parce que les agneaux Suffolk ont le meilleur taux de gain et répondent bien à l'élevage en bâtiment, ils offrent un excellent rendement économique et continuent de dominer le marché de l'agneau lourd au Canada. Les béliers sont largement utilisés pour les croisements terminaux dans des troupeaux de brebis commerciales en raison de leur capacité à produire des agneaux avec d'excellentes performances de croissance et des carcasses de qualité.

Le Suffolk a, cependant, une grande consommation et le maintien d'un mouton de taille modéré sous un système de gestion plus contrôlé est avantageux dans l'exploitation de leurs caractéristiques bouchères d'une façon économiquement rentable.
