ABOUT EAST BUNGAREE
In 2020, East Bungaree was sold in its entirety to Collinsville Stud Merinos – marking the union of two of the largest volume Merino and Poll Merino breeders of Australia. The two stud flocks remain separate with normal continuity of respective bloodlines and management. The combination of East Bungaree and Collinsville Merino Studs brings collective experience, knowledge and long-lasting, profitable bloodlines to the Merino and Poll Merino Industry, collectively making up the largest volume producer in Australia.
Tony Brooks continues to actively work with the East Bungaree stud and sheep as the key person involved in selection and breeding of the stud bloodlines. Collinsville and East Bungaree are neighbours near Hallett, therefore the sheep will still be bred to meet the needs of customers in the Mid North of South Australia at Hallett. Both East Bungaree and Collinsville breed heavy-cutting sheep carrying a large frame with strong reputation across the world for profitability and productivity. The objective is to retain the valuable attributes of the East Bungaree Merinos – including size, fertility and the ability to thrive in pastoral country – but at the same time improve the quality of wool they grow.
