We have been breeding sheep at Gawler River since 1917. Our aim has always been to produce rams and ewes that perform well in a range of environments.
We select for
- fast growth
- excellent muscling
- easy care
to produce rams that sire heavy, early-maturing lambs to provide the best profit for our clients.
How do we measure our success?
- Lambplan performance testing. Newbold rams are ranked in the top 10% of all terminal sires in Australia.
- Feedback from our ram buyers and stock agents.
- Show results . Newbold Poll Dorset rams won the prestigious Champion Interbreed Lamb Production Terminal award at the 2013 Royal Adelaide Show.
- Saleyard results. The success we have with our own lambs, with many sired by Newbold rams.
