Shearing

The final arbiter of the international pre-eminence of the Collinsville breed is the auctioneer's hammer - the price that competing buyers are prepared to pay to possess one of the stud's special rams. No other affirmation of their quality is needed beyond the fact that since 1961 Collinsville has consistently broken the world record price with its merino stud rams.

These repetitive successes reflect the depth of breeding and continuity of purpose the Collinsville has gained as a result of its long-serving studmasters and their common quest. The result is complete predictability in breeding. Collinsville rams are recognised as being genetically sound. That means they breed what the buyer sees.
