We commenced breeding White Suffolks in 1988. Started as a 'hobby', the stud is now an integral part of our farming enterprise and our main focus.
The stud's foundation sheep were purchased from top Suffolk, Poll Dorset and White Suffolk studs including the well renowned Elouera stud dispersal.
Four Suffolk rams, (1 Burwood and 3 Allendale rams) were used over an eleven year period to reinforce a strong and sound Suffolk base (as documented in the breed's flock register book) resulting in approximately half the flock being coloured during those years.
In 1991, Langley Heights 254/90 was purchased in conjunction with Aylesbury Farm and this ram produced some very clean, white sheep with excellent Suffolk type.
In 1992 we purchased Allendale G89/91, a long, deep bodied ram with excellent carcase composition and a wonderful Suffolk ram Allendale 105/91. These two rams had a big influence in our stud in those early years.
In 1993 we commenced showing to promote the breed and our increasing number of ideal white sheep. Successful from the start, our show record reflects the depth of quality and soundness in our breeding flock.
In 1995 we purchased a share in Anden 4.006. This ram's progeny excelled for us at the 1997 Royal Adelaide Show, winning both Champion Ram & Champion Ewe awards, 7 first prize ribbons and Supreme All Breeds Group in a record showing!
A half share in our Champion Ram, Wingamin 887/96 "Shadow" was sold to Allendale stud for $5,000.
Our numerous championships and interbreed wins at major shows is testament to our dedication towards breed excellence. The stud has been a consistent achiever at major shows attended over many years.
The focus of our breeding program remains on meeting high industry standards and in recent years we have been committed to breeding for fast, early growth and high muscle content producing hardy and profitable sheep for commercial clients.
