Haddon Rig Merino Stud

The Australian Merino industry has evolved and adapted through good times and bad, since Merinos were first introduced to the country with the first fleet in 1788. Established in 1882, Haddon Rig Merino Stud has risen to each challenge and is now one of the most recognised sources of quality Merino genetics in the country. George and Sally Falkiner join together with stud manager, Andy Maclean in welcoming you to the Haddon Rig website. Here, you will learn not only about the stud’s formidable past but also get a glimpse into its future, as it prepares clients for new fortunes, challenges, and opportunities in this great industry of ours. Please feel free to sign up for our regular email newsletters, and we look forward to seeing you soon at a Haddon Rig event.        


'100 Years of Ownership'

The Falkiner family celebrate 100 years of ownership at Haddon Rig in 2016 – a small celebration is planned during the on-property sale – set for Thursday 8th September, 2016.

"They've got a depth of sheep and a depth of rams there to choose from, which is very important. Last shearing (March, 2012), our grown sheep averaged 8.34kg of 21-micron wool with an average yield of 65.99%. They went on to have 115% of lambs..."
