Our Sheep

History

Mulga Springs Poll was established using Pollville sires. Since then the stud has used Haseley and Newpowie sires, and has done for the past 5 years with great results. We used the Nepowie and our own sires for the stud and commercial flocks. We’ve now mixed this up by using Semen sires 881, 350 + 739 from Glenlea Park in 2017, before purchasing the top priced ram at Nepowie in 2019. We look forward to seeing the results from these matings.

We mate 700 stud ewes and 1,500 commercial ewes.

Sheep Available

Every September we have available:

  • 400-450 ewe hogget breeders culled from the stud flock weighing 50kg and cutting 4.5kg wool shorn at 9 months
  • 85 June 2015 drop rams
  • Rams are available at the Northern Stud Breeders Ram Sale on the 14th September, others by private selection. Wool and meat test results are also available for perusal on request.

Inspections by appointment are welcome!

What’s new?

As well as the usual wool testing, we have been eye muscle scanning our rams from 2013. Our sheep are also in the top 5% for dual purpose in Australia. Check Our Wool for our 2020 Flock Profiling results. 

Since completing Lifetime Ewe Management we have started multiple pregnancy testing to see what the potential of our ewes are. Since moving shearing to 2 weeks before joining we have created a much tighter joining period for the ewes and this translated into 145% potential lambing with 3.8% drys.
