The South Suffolk first appeared in New Zealand during the 1930s in response to an overseas demand for leaner meat. It is a New Zealand breed developed in Canterbury by a Southdown stud breeder, Mr George Gould.
The original Suffolks were the result of crossing Southdown rams on Norfolk Horned ewes. Apparently the product of this cross was a great improvement over either one of the parents.
