Karoonda & Districts Merino Field Days



Stud Principals: Ian & Fiona Koch

Karoonda & Districts Stud Merino Field Day
When: Friday 27th July
Where: Murray Bridge Showground
Times: From 10:00am - 4.00pm.

Bunyara Merino and Poll Merino Studs are located at Moculta North East of the Barossa Valley. The stud aims to produce large framed, plain bodied, early maturing sheep with stylish with free growing, long stapled wool.

Our early maturing and meat/eye muscle qualities were highlighted in 2017 by winning the All Purpose Pen of Two Ram Lambs at the Elders SA Stud Merino Expo at Burra in March. This was backed up at the Royal Adelaide Show in the Fibre Meat class with our two entries finishing 2nd and 8th out of 41 rams. Our eye muscle and fat depth were also a highlight of our 2017 sale rams.

At Bunyara’s 33rd on property auction 80 Merino and Poll Merino rams were offered, selling to $3,800 three times and averaging $1,598, giving clients the opportunity to purchase quality sires at affordable prices .

Bunyara rams are the ideal fit for dual purpose Merino flock. Our rams are suited to a wide range of environments and conditions from pastoral properties to cropping/sheep enterprises and high rainfall grazing.

The 34th annual on-property auction will be on Thursday, September 13, commencing at 1.30pm at the Bunyara stud at Moculta.

This year’s rams are available for inspection at local country shows, the SA Stud Merino Expo at Burra in March, the Karoonda and Districts Field Day at Murray Bridge in late July, at the Royal Adelaide Show and our pre-inspection day in September .
