Willandra Client to the Fore Again at Peter Westblade Memorial Merino Challenge 2016-18.

Recently the first shearing took place in the PWMMC and Willandra client “TW Lord and Sons” placed first in the spring drop group and third overall to older sheep in the winter drop group. But significantly, by a margin, they were placed first overall for fleece value using 5yr ave. value ($63.19) or the current spot price ($92.59). We expect that next year as the young sheep mature and grow that the result will improve.


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.
