Welcome

Bundemar is one of the original foundation merino studs in Australia, purchased by Tom and Kate in 2008 and settled into a new home on the banks of the Lachlan River at Condobolin in the centre of NSW.

We offer seed stock producing bright, soft wools with lock and skins that drape and comb.

 

Approach

As we rebuild the historic Bundemar Stud our focus has been on wool cuts, wool quality and sheep structure.

Average Wool Cuts

AUG 2017                                

4000 grown sheep              7.4kg

20.4 micron stud ewes      9.0kg  

JUL 2018

4000 grown sheep               6.1kg

20.4 micron stud ewes       7.0kg

With cut, quality and structure humming along nicely our focus is now turning to management and weaning percentages.

The addition of four hundred One Oak ewes from their stud dispersal sale and purchase of The Gilgais, a 3680 ha property 30 kilometres north-west of Condo, is allowing for a wet and dry program to build on the fertility of the stud.

The 2018 season has been very tough with trail feeding of all ewes commencing in March. The sale rams have been grown out on the irrigation – they present exceptionally well and are worthy of inspection.
