Corriedale Sheep Stud
Coldstream Corriedale Stud was formed
in 1922, originally based on bloodlines from the New
Zealand and Australian Land Company. Since this time
outside rams have been carefully selected from both
Australia and New Zealand which have been adapted to our
farming conditions and breeding a unique type of their
own at Coldstream.
Our primary goal is to breed for our
commercial clients easy-care, well-sprung, open faced
- High live weight gains
- Heavy clipping high quality
- High fertility
- Footrot resistance
- Parasite resistance
Performance recording ensures progeny
meet our criteria. Data is sifted through regularly to
identify high achievers.
ram lambs are DNA tested as part of the gene marker
program and stud sires are all highly resistant to
footrot; the property is footrot free. Coldstream
Estate's 3500 commercial ewe flock is the proving ground
for the stud progeny. To ensure the stud sheep are
tested under harsh conditions none of the stud sheep are
run on irrigated pastures.
