Another pleasant morning sheep classing

On the way home from a successful display of sheep in the Genstock tent at Hamilton Sheepvention, Ross and Peter called into the Gould family’s property to class their 2016 drop maiden ewes. As they drove up to the sheep yards, Peter absentmindedly thought that Ian had brought put some rams into the end yard for them to look at. Then suddenly realised they had no horns, he was looking at the balance of the maiden ewes! A credit to the Gould’s and some 40 odd years of  “Willandra” bloodlines, as demonstrated by their success in the Peter Westblade wether trial.

A Long Tradition - A Modern Success


#Image Willandra is a family owned business with a long history of success. The original Willandra Merino Stud was established west of Hillston, NSW, in 1886 and was based on Wanganella F. No. 83 and Tasmanian bloodlines believed to be from Belle Vue.

In 1974, the Willandra Stud was purchased by the Wells family and moved to Jerilderie where they have proudly continued the tradition of breeding hardy, well-balanced fertile sheep carrying big fleeces of quality wool. Keeping abreast of current marketing and production trends and continuing to develop and improve the modern Willandra Merino bloodstock is of paramount importance.
