Kurralea Poll Dorset stud was founded in 1975 followed by the formation of Kurralea White Suffolk in 1999 & the introduction of the Suffolk breed in 2014. Identifying future trends for a shedding style sheep we recently added the Ultra White breed in 2019 to further diversify studs’ breeding program.
We are now proudly one of the major suppliers of high performance rams to both the stud & commercial industry across Australia.
A philosophy of breeding practical, functional & easy care sheep with the highest performance & carcase standards has been behind customer demand that has fuelled our growth & ongoing success in offering around 350 stud & commercial rams for sale each year.
All stud sires, both the rams bred here at Kurralea, or sires we buy from other leading studs, are carefully researched & selected with the following key criteria in mind. The rams must be structurally correct with suitable Lambplan figures, present as an eye catching ram in a class of his own & be a sire who we believe will enhance our breeding program aims.
By running a large ewe base in all our breeds we have the advantage of selecting sires from the large numbers we turn off each year.
Many sires we have used within our studs over the years have made a significant impact.
Our Health status is MN2-V (NS15050), we are Brucellosis Accredited (Y237) & performance tested in Lambplan.
