- Pushing the individual performance of the animals, monitored through the Lamb Plan figures, and
- Producing elite figured White Suffolks for the client.
Brenton has plans to expand Yonga Downs to supply 150 rams annually. This desire is driven by the high demand for White Suffolks and his personal passion for the breed, having grown up with them on the families farm. "The White Suffolk is an easy lamber and has quick growth rates. This is what appeals to me", says Brenton. Brenton has an equal passion for great client service. Get in touch today.
