Features

For the last 6 years we have not mulesed. During that time we have managed to drastically reduce the incidence of flystrike in our flock and also to increase the size of our sheep.

The stud aims to provide highly profitable genetics for our clients by providing highly fertile sheep with good bone structure, constitution and frame size suitable for a variety of environments with heavy wool cuts whilst resistant to fleece rot and flystrike.

The wool is targeted for the premium markets of qaulity wool for both the breeder and processor with excellent staple strength, brightness, whiteness, soft handling, well defined crimping, even length, excellent bellies and free of pigmentation. Choice of rams with the required crimp frequency and correct clip preparation will allow clients to target specific markets, maximise production and returns available from premiums associated ASF2 and ASF3 wool types. The large frame size maximises carcass returns.
