Suffolk Genetic Recovery Program

U.S.S.A Board Adopts Suffolk Genetic Recovery Program

The United Suffolk Board in its retreat during the spring of 2015 proposed a goal of establishing a Suffolk genetic recovery program under the breed improvement plan.  It became apparent to the Board that a number of Suffolk breeders had not registered their Suffolks for many years.  These sheep were not eligible for the percentage registration program even though they were of Suffolk origins.  The Board decided to explore the ramifications of allowing these breeders to register their sheep by appointing a committee to further investigate the issue.  The Board adopted a Suffolk genetic recovery proposal after much research and numerous meetings.  The parameters of the program are as follows.

Eligibility for Suffolk GAP registrations

Must be a member in good standing of the U.S.S.A. or U.J.S.S.A
