It all started when…

Kerin Poll Merino stud was established in 2009 with the goal to build the traits that made the terminal industry a success into the Merino breed, “fast early growth”, “fertility” and “doing ability”.
10 years on our data for post weening weight is 103% above the Australian Merino industry average

With the innovation of genomics and technology we were able to fast track our data through the use of embryo transfer and artificial insemination. Resulting in our Merinos exhibiting outstanding growth pattens only previously seen in terminal breeds. This has allowed our clients to succeed in producing an animal with increased fertility and fast growth, allowing their flocks to create a faster turnover of product.
