Good for terminal sires, and for cross breeding ewes

I started with Dorpers, but switched to Suffolks last year. I'm very happy with them, they are very good at staying where they should, and are also very large animals. I will probably start building a flock of some more crossed suffolk ewes, and switch between a Cheviot sire, and maybe a Charolais. I am selling the lambs for meat, and they come up good and big, but sometimes have issues because of their size, with shearing and so forth.
