Features

Shalimar Park Merinos have great size, cut, style, softness and constitution. This is proven by the stud's success at shows and weather trials.
At Shalimar the stud has a long-standing clientele. Our two longest standing ram buyers both bought the equal top price rams at the 2015 annual on-property ram sale.

Frank Presnell, "Frama" Guyra, has continuously bought rams from Shalimar for more than 50 years, while Bob and Brett Cummins from Deepwater have been buying rams for more than 30 years.

Shalimar Park has also sold a number of rams to leading merino studs in every state of Australia.

The Shalimar Park Merinos annual commercial surplus sheep sale usually tops the local sales.
