Hannaton White Suffolks

The stud was registered in 2018 when the opportunity came up to purchase 60 cast for age stud ewes from Duenclin White Suffolk Stud. A well renowned stud that had been selling up to 200 rams locally until 2015 when they relocated to Karoonda in SA. These ewes were joined to three top Detpa Grove sires through AI in 2018 along with the purchase of a stud sire.  In September 2018 more ewes were purchased from leading indexing studs Anden and Detpa Grove.  We were also able to purchase Anden 170185 – an excellent growth and muscle sire – who was part of Andens runner up White Suffolk & Interbreed Lamb Production Class in Export at the 2018 Royal Adelaide Show.

The stud has simple breeding objectives

  • High Growth Rates – selecting for high weaning and post weaning weights

  • High Carcass Yield – Targeting high eye muscle depth

  • Bare Heads and Points – producing easy care lambs and ideal rams to join to merino ewes

  • Sound Structure and Constitution - Giving longevity for rams
