WELCOME TO RAMSGATE POLL MERINOS
Ramsgate Poll is family owned and operated and is located in the Upper South East of South Australia at Tintinara.
The stud is part of a diverse farming enterprise incorporating cropping, sheep and centre-pivot irrigation for the production of Lucerne seed and hay.
These enterprises are run across 1800 ha of varying soil types from heavy limestone to deep sand, with an annual rainfall of 400 ml.
Our main goal is to breed profitable rams for our clients, hence our motto is: “Fibre and Fertility on Frame with Figures”, as these are the three main profit drivers.
With this in mind, our stud’s focus is breeding poll merinos with...
- Exceptional fibre length and quality, suiting six month shearing.
- Solid wool cuts.
- Early maturing offspring, with positive fat readings.
- Quality carcass traits.
- High fertility.
- Strong mothering ability.
- Low breach wrinkle → non-mulesed.
To achieve these aims, Ramsgate Poll uses Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs) , objective measurements and strict visual classing.
