Chapelizod Suffolks, Flock HLT, est. 1993

Suffolks are the fastest growing of the Terminal sire breeds, however the pursuit of fashionable show ring traits by some has seen it lose ground to other breeds in recent years.

In 2006 and 2007 the Chapelizod Suffolk flock ranked number 1 for average live weight and number 1 for average index.

At Chapelizod the focus has been to try to breed Suffolks for the commercial farmer. The focus is on increasing carcass conformation and production from Grass with minimum concentrate feeding. Excessive bone can be detrimental to ease of lambing and lamb survival at the expense of Kill Out percentage (K.O.%).
