SIL Flock 2629

In the early 1980s a number of twin bearing ewes were screened from the commercial flock at Nithdale and rams primarily from the North Island, from breeders who were part of the New Zealand Romney Development Group, were put across these ewes. Breeding an easy care sheep that could lamb unassisted was the initial focus.

Nithdale Purchases Wairaki Romney Stud

We purchased the Wairaki Romney Stud from Richard and Trudy Slee in 2014. It has given us the opportunity to increase the size of our stud Romney flock to just under 2000 ewes. We will maintain this stud as straight Romneys allowing us to offer both pure Romneys and Romney/Texels we have been breeding since 2005.
