End of an era but huge opportunity for Uardry Stud
Elders is pleased to present some of Australia’s most prized and sought after sheep genetics at the Hay sale yards in December.
The sale consists of the complete dispersal of the iconic Uardry Merino Stud and the Uardry Dohne Stud – almost 15,000 sheep – as well as the Hereford Cattle herd over two days in December.
Following the sales both stud names will be auctioned with intellectual rights.
Uardry is one of Australia’s oldest and most successful sheep studs and was recently purchased by the Brinkworth family of South Australia.
Elders Zone General Manager – South, Malcolm Hunt said this sale represents a unique opportunity for producers across the country to purchase genetics that have influenced many studs throughout Australia over the years.
“Such an event hasn’t been seen in Australia for many years and it means industry will be able to access genetics that haven’t been available before,” Mr Hunt said.
“Uardry has been a very successful stud for many years and Elders has been proud to partner with them, and the new owners the Brinkworths, over a long period of time,” he said.
“Uardry has a long history and is synonymous with the Australian merino history and one of the Uardry Merino Rams even appeared on the Australian shilling coin.”
From 10.30am on Wednesday, 12 December, approximately 100 x 100 Hereford cows and spring calves at foot, 19 heifers and calves and 100 mix sex weaners and bulls will be available.
