Breeding principals at the Ridgway Advance Poll Merino stud, Bordertown have always been to coordinate high reproduction with the maximizing of meat and quality fibre production. Importantly “when it comes to merinos it is a matter of striking the Correct Balance.”

David, Karen and Devon Ridgway believe that fertility with lambs on the ground, white quality fibre that displays a deep bold crimp with staple length, carcase, structure and conformation are all-important aspects of the Advance Poll Merino.

The Stud does not chase industry fads, but concentrates on breeding animals that they firmly believe is the right direction for their own merino enterprise & for their clients to continually achieve sustainable profits.

This balanced approach enables the Advance Merinos to adapt well in all environments and reproduce at high levels while competing well in commercial markets.

Due to the Ridgway Advance breeding strategies, the depth and pedigree of the 300 sale rams are of the highest quality for a budget that would suit most serious merino producers. They display a distinctive meaty carcass of correct structure and heavy bone, while complemented with white, deep-crimped and well-aligned fibre that grows at a rapid rate.
