Supplier News

Stanbury Corriedales  specialises in breeding commercial livestock such as Corriedales rams and ewes. Stanbury Corriedales was founded solely on stud Merino and Lincoln sheep. The stud was established with the purchase of over 400 stud Lincoln ewes from Mt. Gambier S.A. The stud Lincoln ewes were mated with Merino rams, which were bought from J.L.Currie near Camperdown.

Later in 1884, Stanbury Corriedales added the Lincoln ewes which were purchased from T.F.Rutledge. These Lincoln ewes were joined with the Merino rams. Stanbury Corriedales retrained the best rams produced by the Lincoln ewes. At present, Stanbury offers a variety of rams and has categorised the rams as 1, 2 and 3.
