Welcome to Woodpark Merino and Poll Merino Studs

We are a family operation of dedicated sheep breeders with a love for what we do and a commitment to our industry.

Our long established studs have significant flock size, with more than 2800 ewes, giving us the depth to class heavily and strictly to our breeding parameters. Because our Poll and Merino studs are run separately at different properties, each year we join our best Merino ewes to Merinos and our best Poll Merino ewes to Poll Merino rams. Last year’s Poll shearing grown ewes averaged 8.2kg of 18.2 micron, with a micron spred of 17.7-18.7 across the ewe flock.

Our rams and ewes are benchmarked annually, for the profit drivers of wool cut, quality and sheep weight. Breeding from within for generations of sheep means the genetics are predictable and repeatable. Any introductions are judiciously selected and their progeny evaluated against our own sheep before their inclusion in our breeding.

Livestock is our sole business, so our breeding program is immersed in reality.

Breeding Towards Today’s Merino for More than 20 Years

We started breeding the balanced Merino demanded by today’s market two decades ago. The stable genetics have allowed us to build towards today’s free, easy-care, productive sheep; with big square frames and a bulk of soft, quality wool. The Woodpark vision of 20 years ago is evident in our sheep today.

Woodpark Poll Merino Stud

Classing ewes at Mulquiny’s Wooroonook. Having been the highest combined fleece & carcass value in the Peter Westblade wether trial of $205, $10 higher than the next best in the first shearing this autumn. Having the highest value carcass and 2nd highest fleece value, a well balanced animal. Whilst classing it was easy to see why, bulky soft fleece big square well grown bodies.

Super stylish wool well done

Well Done, I'm not a wool classer, but sure looks good 👍👍👍

A great example of balanced merino genetics, these young sheep displaying all the traits we aim for. No surprise their older brothers have compared so well in the PWMMC, Australia’s largest evaluation of commercial merino genetics. Great results for a young person, keen on sheep in a mainly area. Started with quality and only improving every year. Just shows what great decisions based on quality information achieve. Well done Harrison and Bernie

Nice one fellas. Lachlan Mulquiny.
