Lauridale Poll Dorset Stud was founded in 1981 with the total purchase of 104 ewes from Stud 738 (est. 1964).
Ian Robinson was the owner and he purchased the stud from Murray Pitty many years before.
It is indeed a very old original stud.
While our aim is naturally length and muscle with proper short downs wool,
we must also have open faced rams because of our hot climate and grass seeds.
We have used Lambplan and the original NSW Meatsheep Testing Service for at least 30+ years.
We have previously had up to 350 ewes, but are now running around 160.
We are Brucellosis Accredited Free for 39 years and Johnes Accredited MN3 for 25 years, making us a health conscious and safe stud.
