Founded in 1975, Kurralea Poll Dorset stud has grown to be one of the major suppliers of rams to the stud & commercial industry. A philosophy of breeding for practical, functional and easy care sheep with the highest performance & carcase standards has been behind customer demand that has fuelled this growth.
The typical Kurralea Poll Dorset is larger framed & longer bodied than most, with strong & flat bone that enables it to carry the increased muscling capabilities required by today’s consumers, retailers, processors & commercial producers alike.
Built into that is a special focus on early growth & yield, but not at the expense of the ability to have progeny keep growing to heavier carcase weights if required, thus giving all clients market flexibility.
This has required patience, plus a consistent unwavering focus on the stud’s selection principles.
We currently join around 800 Poll Dorset stud ewes each year.
