Thanks! Message sent.

FLOCK SIZE: Join approx 80 stud ewes each year

PROPERTY DETAILS:  Chain Gate is located 5km from Wagga Wagga on Murrumbidgee River flats. The average rainfall is 570mm. Rainfall tends to have a slight winter dominance.  Average summer temperatures are about 300C but can exceed 400C.  Winter temperatures average about 13oC with frosts common.

WHY I BREED CHEVIOTS: We started to breed Cheviots in 1957 when they were a very popular terminal sire, but have continued to breed them because they are an easy care breed.  Cheviots are highly adaptable and can handle quite a range of climatic extremes. They have hard black feet so foot problems are very rare. They are very fertile and lamb without assistance. The lambs are small but very active and are able to suckle quickly.
