Wunnamurra Poll Dorsets
In Pets, Livestock & Agriculture

Wunnamurra are a family business running a highly developed irrigation farm of 968 hectares drawing our water allocation from the Murray River through the privatised Murray Irrigation Limited system. Our paddocks are all laser levelled utilising flood irrigation, with full drainage and recycling of all water.
Our cropping program consists of irrigated rice, wheat, and canola and improved pastures of sub clover, lucerne, and shaftal clover with ryegrass. Our pastures are used for prime lamb production and opportunity hay sales.
Our Prime Lamb enterprise currently uses around 700 locally sourced Merino ewes featuring Woodpark and Willandra blood, shearing annually in February. We lamb in April/May for September over the hooks sales. This gives us valuable feedback on how our rams are performing. The entire drop of lambs are typically sold from mid-September to mid-October, usually aiming for a minimum of 50kg liveweight, season depending.
The Wunnamurra Poll Dorset Stud was established in 1987 to breed rams for ourselves, however, it was quickly recognised that to breed the correct type of sheep for the growing lamb industry we needed a reasonable sized flock. We now run 450 ewes and use Artificial insemination every year so that we can access the best genetics possible.
