Welcome to South of Ireland Suffolks

The South of Ireland Branch of the Suffolk Sheep Society is involved in the promotion and marketing the highest quality sheep on the market. The Suffolks are outstanding for superior growth rate, easy fleshing, early finishing, ideal cross to all breeds, they produce hardy lively lambs, produce lots of lambs, turn out early lambs, the Suffolks produce quality in quantity.


The Suffolk breed has been in existence since the late 1700’s. The Society was originally formed in 1886. The Suffolk is renowned as a terminal sire breed and remains No 1 for growth rate. This ability to grow and finish quickly is essential in a falling market and Suffolk lambs can also be taken to heavier carcase weights, if required. Increasing numbers of producers now include Suffolk genetics in their ewe flocks as the breed has high milk output, hard hooves and are easy lambing. If you are tired of soft and/or slow-growing lambs or ewes that have unacceptable levels of udder and feet problems, why not use a Suffolk instead?
