LEADERS IN HAMPSHIRE DOWN
Based at St Helens Plains in the Victorian Wimmera, just North of the Grampians National Park.
The studs boasts a combined 60 year breeding program in which we have produced some of the strongest commercial lines of Hampshires, which have been unrivaled in show and sale rings.
Our genetics can be traced back to the prestigious Shapwick Flock in Wimborne, Dorset, United Kingdom, which was founded in 1834.
Our genetics can be found in majority of Hampshire Studs throughout Australia. We are extremely proud to have sustained our pure bloodline and preserved our unique breed in Australia's trying weather conditions.
Our stock are DNA tested and genotyped for many different reasons. One goal is to breed our flock to have full resistance to Scrapie (Sheep equivalent of Mad Cow Disease).
Annually we produce 60-70 top rams for select commercial terminal flocks throughout Australia.
We are the longest running performance recording Hampshire Down flock with Sheep Genetics (Lambplan) joining in their founding year. Our ewe lambs are joined at nine months of age and speed up our genetic gain to allow more superior genetics to be produced.
Lambs sired by our Hampshire Down rams have tremendous growth rates, averaging 420grams/day, up to 750 grams a day until market age. Average over the past 10 years.
Our entire stud breeding ewe flock sits in the top 1% of all breeds in Australia for Intra-muscular fat (IMF), also in the top 1% for Shear Force. Both have strong correlation to Eating Quality.
Ram Lambs for the February 2021 Period have sold out.
Yearling Rams are available in October 2021. (100-120kg)
Rams are priced from $1200+GST.
All rams have estimated breeding data from Sheep Genetics (Lambplan)
