CHICKERLOO POLL DORSET, SUFFOLK AND WHITE SUFFOLK STUDS CELEBRATE FORTY YEAR

I

n its forty years the Chickerloo Studs` long term aim has been producing a consistent product for the commercial producer, a line of sheep that is robust, profitable and easy care. We seek to achieve this by strict adherence to a set of breeding husbandry and business principles applied to whole flock, producing a reliable supply of quality sheep that breed consistently and at a realistic price. Chickerloo sheep are carefully selected on commercial considerations that carry over from one generation to the next, with emphasis on the important traits, carcase structure, growth rate and fertility. Adding new bloodlines to improve the studs` genetics has always been a priority. Chickerloo has been heavily reliant on Allendale and Day`s Whiteface studs` sires. Exciting new genetics have been obtained with the purchase of Day`s Whiteface 160048, son of Waratah 130645, used by Days

as a ram lamb, producing outstanding sons, three of which sold at the 2018 sale, with a fourth being retained in the stud, and his first drop of sons at Chickerloo are most impressive. Suffolk sales have been strong in recent years and sons of the Mornish ram, Allendale 1439, bought in partnership with Lanacoona stud, are well represented in this year`s draft. Bred on long term selection principles, Chickerloo rams are long, robust sheep that will breed true to type. They are grass fed and come with a two working season guarantee. On farm inspection begins October 1st with a good selection from 250 rams at realistic prices. Kalangadoo SA 08 87 393 058. Kent 0437 699 210. Rose 0408 929 509. Nick 0448 521 816.
