Armidale has always bred for a true dual purpose merino whilst maintaining a quality white water proof wool, sound confirmation and constitution. Our main focus is to produce a commercial ewe that will sustainably lift the economic farm surplus per stock for us and our clients. We have entered our performance data into Merino Select and now have ASBV’s for those clients who wish to use them.

Breeds: Merino, Poll Merino
