A picture of Cahill Sheep wearing blankets at a show

Cahill Suffolks is a sheep operation that takes place on Cahill Farms in Brimfield, IL. The farm was established in 1902 making it one of the centennial farms located in Peoria County. Today, primary operations of the farm are crop and livestock raising.

Raising Suffolk sheep was an operation that started off as a hobby led by Pete Cahill. Over the years it has evolved into a more serious business thanks to the involvement of our entire family. We wish to connect with other Suffolk sheep operations and continue to expand our business as we become a widely known name in the Suffolk sheep industry.

Genetics
Our flock is rich in the breeding of Ruby Mountain Sheep Company. In fact, we haven't used a ram from any other flock in the country. We started with a ram called "tuf", followed by "Mr. Lucky", used a ram called "Spartacus"; then on to "Linebacker", and now on to a homegrown son, "Linebacker II". He will be used heavily. Our flock is rich in the breeding of the past rams witha mix of each represented. Each line seems to contribute to our flock each year.

  our 2012 flock at the Illinois State Fair

2012 Flock at the Illinois State Fair

 
I liked this picture that Greg took at the 2012 Illinois State Fair well enough to have in my office because it has a son and 4 grandsons holding sheep. But, this picture got better with time.

The ram on the right stood 4th in his yearling ram class at 2013 Sedalia. The ewe lamb next to him won her yearling ewe class at 2013 Sedalia. The next ewe lamb won her yearling ewe class at 2013 Illinois State Fair and was Reserve Grand Champion. The next yearling ewe gave us a keeper ewe lamb and the outside ewe gave us a keeper ewe lamb and an outstanding ram that we are going to use here. Might want to reconsider the placing on this class.

Showing our flock at the Illinois State Fair is always a family affair.
