SANDALWOOD POLL MERINOS BREED WORKING MAN’S RAMS.
Sandalwood Poll Merinos (formerly Kamora-Netley Park) have worked hard over fifty years to produce Poll Merinos that are big boned, with excellent square structure, good pasterns and lovely loose soft skin carrying white, stylish wools.
The strict classing requirements at Sandalwood Poll ensures that all their sheep have white crimpy wools with lock which is something the stud has worked hard at. Wool with good lock keep out the elements which is particularly important for yield.
Strong future for Sandalwood
Ben and Jacqui Reichstein, with Charlie and Maz Reichstein, operate Charmic Ag located in South Australia’s Northern Mallee region near Mantung/Mercunda.
The Reichstein’s have been buying Sandalwood Poll Merino (formerly Kamora Netley Park) genetics for nearly forty years.
“Lambs on the ground, wool thumping the table and meat in the cool room; that’s why we keep coming back to Sandalwood Poll (formerly Kamora Netley Park).
Sandalwood Poll produce big, framed sheep that perform for us year after year. There is never a bad ram in the sale which enables us to buy with confidence plus the after sales service from Sandalwood Poll is fantastic.
Sandalwood Poll are an exceptionally good stud to work with. Reggie (Justin Boughen) classes our ewes every year. Each year we are seeing improvements in the quality of the rams and our flock. The lambing percentage is getting better and better.
We finish our wether lambs as heavyweights after shearing in March, and our lead drafts out of the feedlot usually dress around 36kg.
Last year we sent the lead draft of 252 wether lambs to the Wagga market and the top 204 made $280 and the consignment averaged $277. This year we sent the lead draft and some cull ewes to Fletcher’s Dubbo and the lambs averaged 36.45kg at $279 and the ewes averaged 39kg returning $274.50.
Can’t complain about that! These sheep reward you for your effort,” says Ben Reichstein, Mantung, South Australia.
