Currently we are using a combination of AI and natural breeding in our flock.
AI lambs are sired by Chinook, Manchester II, Keeper’s Kopy, The Boz, Leeds, and Whisper 42.
Naturally sired lambs will be by sons or grandsons of the AI sires. Complete pedigree information is available on request.
We constantly try to match sires with dams that will produce Whisper lambs that have maximum genetic potential. The Tomorrow/Leeds line maximizes style, The Boz/Manchester line maximizes size, and the Keeper’s Kopy/Chinook line contributes thickness & longevity. Combine all three lines, and you have a Whisper Suffolk.
