Raising Suffolks since 1950

Welcome to Lost River Livestock

The flock was established in 1950 with two ewe lambs from the oldest and most well known flock in the nation - that being Green Valley, Fred and Marion Coble. Our flock now consists of 35 foundation ewes that are selected for milkability, longevity, mothering, records, pedigrees and soundness.
