Depth and Quality bring success for Kurralea clients

• The depth of quality and performance in Kurralea rams is renowned and is clearly evident in these Poll Dorsets. Over 350 rams will be on offer at their late September sale. Cont.


The continued sales successes at the Prentice family’s Kurralea Poll Dorset and White Suffolk ram sale are the headline news stories, but it is the success of their clients that is their focus and the reason why the headlines continue.

Last year 356 rams from the two breeds achieved a total clearance to buyers from three states at a wonderful $1785 average.

The question could be asked as to why they have continually achieved nation leading sales successes.

From a breeding perspective, Kurralea has always strived to produce sheep that combine elite performance and structural excellence; bigger framed rams that do the job for clients in wide ranging environments to meet multiple markets. It is this latter point that enables different clients the flexibility to successfully and efficiently target different carcase weights and grid specifications. The fact that commercial producers are willing to travel to Ariah Park from many areas of NSW and interstate to purchase the rams that can increase their bottom line, is a strong endorsement of the Kurralea quality.

James Baldry, Wallendbeen, NSW endorsed that quality when he said, “One of the benefits of Kurralea is the obvious genetic depth within the stud which assures consistency of performance and robustness of rams, giving us even lines of marketable lambs that can be sold in the 18 to 28 kilogram carcase weight range.”

Other producers readily endorse the Kurralea qualities and their comments, plus up to date sale information, can be viewed on the Kurralea website (

Their 2016 annual sale will see another 350 rams on offer on Tuesday 27th September, commencing at 12:30 EST, with Suffolks also added to the mix this year. This stud was commenced by Ben’s wife Lucy while she was in the successful treatment process for cancer.

If you are looking for depth, quality and performance, this sale is not to be missed.
