Yes! You read it correctly. We are the proud owners and operators of a Poll Dorset Stud!!

In March 2015, Toland Pastoral Trust (the new family trust) purchased 300 scanned in lamb Poll Dorset ewes from the Kennedy Creek Stud owned by the Barber family. After a massive 5 weeks of lambing, all lambs were tagged, weighed at birth and linked against the Dam for full pedigree, we now have 80 hogget rams to sell! You can see them here on the Lambplan website: Feltrim Poll Dorsets.aspx and you can arrange a time to visit if you wish! We will be having a small sale at our on property ram sale in September but welcome all private purchases prior to then. Please call Simon on 0427514695 for any additional information.

Lambing is well and truly underway for this year and there are only 9 twin and 7 single ewes to lamb in the Dorset mob. Thank god! It's getting quite chilly on the motor-bike when I go and tag and weigh as it is too wet to get the ute around them! It's fun though and I thoroughly enjoy it. Here is a selfie of me and a new lamb and its mother yesterday......

The Catalogues for Bendigo, Ballarat, Hamilton and Benalla are visible under the sale catalogue page.
