News News News!

Early 2017 Calga Pty Ltd purchased the DD Stud in its entirety which had been based at Moama. 640 ewes in lamb, arrived early March at Calga Station Coonamble. The top 2016 drop rams lambs were also purchased which were grown out and offered for sale along with a line of Uardry and Calga rams at our Southern Sale held in October 2017. Access to these new gentics will be an excellent option for an outcross for our present and future clients.

With the purchase of the DD stud and our recent increase in Calga and Uardry stud numbers it makes our dohne operation one of the biggest globally. We are in a unique situation as we can benchmark our genetic performance through our 15,000 breeding ewe, commercial operation based at Caroonboon Station Wanganella.

The successful genetic performance can be seen by our first time entry in the 2016 Australian Wool and Sheep Show, Champion Dohne Fleece where we took out the award and again in 2017, taking out the Reserve Champion Dohne Fleece. The fleece had a commercial return value  well above the value of the sashed Champion Fleece.

There continues to be great jubilation for us in the fleece department as the fleeces were harvested from our commercial enterprise and not our stud enterprises. Caroonboon Dohne commercial fleeces continued to excel in 2016 at the September Wagga Show taking out the Champion Merino Fleece and the Champion Superfine Fleece awards. In 2017 our fleece again was  sashed the Champion Dohne Fleece at the Wagga Show.
