Stud Began 2007…….

During the winter months, of 2007, we approached our stock agents about the acquisiton of quality border ewes. There were very few on offer until our agent contacted Mr Ian Micheel of Campaspe River [flock number 1753] “River Gum”, Glen Innes. As it happened, Ian was relocating to Victoria and the opportunity arose for the dispersal of some ewes. With 40 ewes and the purchase of a stud ram Campaspe River L-807 [son of River Gum Ranger D2835] our stud was conceived. Official notification was received on 8 August 2007 with the acknowledgement of our prefix “Oakhurst” and flock number 4769


Ewe Base

The success of any flock is through the strength of its females. The forty females selected as the core breeding dams from the Campaspe River Stud were chosen for ‘true to type’, confirmation, frame and wool type.

The New England area has a renowned history of growing premium fine merino wool. There is an abundance of Australia’s dominant sheep breed in the area. We hope to market our Border Leicester rams to clients who wish to join their Merino ewes who are CFA or in their final years of wool production to climatised Border Leicester rams.

In addition, there are many graziers in the area who are specialist prime lamb producers. These producers are seeking the superior maternal first cross ewe. The Border Leicester x Merino cross ewe has become renowned for producing and raising high percentages of top quality lambs that grow rapidly to heavy weights.

The first cross (both ewe and wether portion) also have a far superior skin than the Merino skin, with the elimination of wrinkles and ribbing. This superior skin value is also extremely important when passed onto the ‘second cross’ lambs in the prime lamb industry.
