Get up to speed on the latest in breeding, feeding and management to get the most out of your sheep enterprise. We are honored to have Dr Mark Ferguson from neXtgen Agri presenting. Normally this course is $250 per farm, but we are offering it for free. You still MUST register below to attend the workshop.
Our sires, ram & ewe lambs, ewes and wool will be on display along with the sale rams.
The top 65 rams will be going under the hammer, including some reserves that we joined this year. The auction is being held on farm and online thanks to LRW Rural and Farmgate Auctions.
Follow the link below to the auction website, which will include the catalogue as soon as it is complete.
We are a family business that has been operating in the Goondiwindi district 100 years, currently run by the 3rd & 4th generation of Rissmanns. In 2018, we bought the entire draft of pregnant stud ewes offered at the first stage Well Gully Poll Merino dispersal sale, making us the proud new owners of nearly 1600 stud ewes and 60 stud sires. Their resulting progeny were born on our place and we have continued to breed stud sheep from this ewe base.
Errol Brumpton has now dispersed the remainder of his sheep, but that is not the end of the story for the Well Gully Poll Merino stud. We continue to move forwards, having worked with the classing and guidance of Errol, to breed the Well Gully rams here at Rissmerino.
Those who love beautiful wool
We are passionate about wool! It is such an amazing and versatile fibre and there is so much beauty in a bright white, soft and deeply crimping wool.
Producers looking to move away from mulesing and flystrike
Mulesing has been a hot debate for decades, but it doesn't need to be an issue. With the genetics available today, it is possible to stop mulesing within 2 generations with the right combination of traits.
People that want fast growing surplus lambs
High fertility & good early growth have wonderful compounding effects. More lambs allows more selection pressure and greater genetic gains. Meanwhile, the fast early growth means a quick turnaround of the culls as stores or fat lambs!
Drought hardy, easy care sheep
Our sheep are long and deep bodied, have a deep twist in the rump, and never need mulesing.
Super soft, white wool
Well Gully is renowned for having exquisite, white, long, silky soft wools.
Comprehensive Data Collection
We believe that in addition to the visual traits, it is important to look "under the hood" by collecting data and ASBV's for all our rams.
