2020 is challenging our ability to present our 2019 drop rams to our clients and the industry via our customary attendance at Merino events in the lead up to the ram selling season. Mid July would traditionally have seen us taking a selection of rams to Bendigo to show and display at the Australian Sheep & Wool Show.
Joe Gerritsen is the new Manager of the Wanganella & Poll Boonoke Studs. Starting work at AFA in early July, Joe will be responsible for the day to day management of the stud flocks, the presentation of sale livestock and will work closely with the Stud Management Team to ensure our breeding strategies are implemented and results achieved.

Congratulations to Peter & Meegan McCarten & Family and their Classer Michael Elmes on their results in the 2020 Lake Cargelligo Maiden Merino Ewe Competition.
