Suffolk Stud

Our Sheep

Our Results Do The Talking

In 2014, Oberon Stud began to show its stock with the pleasing result of a first place at our first show (Australian Sheep and Wool Show) for Oberon 3100 – ram under 1 ½ years born after the first of August.

Over the past few years, an emphasis has been to ensure excellent carcass sheep into the prime lamb market. Each year has seen lambs reach greater dressed weights and meat weights. In 2017/18, 5 month old lambs have dressed out at 30kg. 8 month old lambs have been able to reach 35.9kg dressed weight and produced 30.6kg of prime meat described by a renowned Central Highlands chef as "magnificent – vastly superior".

Our Management for High Productivity

Flock Number – 2067
Brucellosis Accreditation – OB3539
Sheep MAP (MN2V) – VS1181

Oberon Suffolk Stud is Ovine Brucellosis accredited and Ovine Johne's Disease accredited MN2V - vaccinated with guidair. The flock is vaccinated with 6 in 1 vaccine and treated for worms with capsule, oral or injectable treatments.

Mineral licks are readily available and young rams may be supplemented with hard feed through autumn and winter – but usually they only have access to hay.

Oberon ewes and ewe lambs are paddock reared with ewes fed oats or pellets once the lambs are born for about 6 weeks and hay handfeeding over winter. In dry years, irrigated Lucerne is available over summer to assist the weaned lambs.

Lambing begins late June and generally finishes early August with some old ewes held back to lamb into September. Oberon Stud now joins ewe lambs to lamb after they turn a year old – usually to lamb in September. Lambs are weaned around 14 weeks of age.
