History

The Kurraview Stud was first established in 1977 as a Poll Dorset Stud. We were attracted to the White Suffolk for its clean points, face and legs.

In 1986, a 50% Suffolk, 50% Poll Dorset Ram was purchased from John Treasure ‘Elouera’ White Suffolk Stud, (Flock no. 6). This Ram was put over selected Poll Dorset ewes from the Kurraview Stud. Their offspring, being 25% Suffolk. In 1988 a Pure Suffolk Ram was brought from ‘Allendale’ Stud SA. This ram was put over the 25% Suffolk ewes plus selected, quality pure Poll Dorset ewes. This was the start of our White Suffolk Stud. The aim was to get white sheep with a high percentage of Suffolk blood, and from there on we have been selecting and breeding from the Rams and Ewes showing true, original  White Suffolk characteristics. Breeding the White Suffolk.  A SUFFOLK that is WHITE.
