Features
Our goal is to produce white,  well defined, deeply crimped & highly nourished 18 - 19 micron wool, on large framed structurally correct, easy care sheep. Which are suited to high rainfall environments. Keeping constitution, productivity & wool cut as priorities.  We aim for well balanced sheep that produce plenty of wool & lambs. Striving to produce early maturing sheep which breed true to type and produce progeny with a low % of culls. We select using both measured and visual traits, Our selection is based on the key profit drivers of wool cut, body weight and micron.  Horns or polls the choice is your.

The adult ewe clip average was 18.2 micron
Average wool cut was over 6.5 kg
sale rams averaged over 100kg body weight
