Breeding Charinga Merinos with Balance

Charinga Merino sell stock studs, with both poll and horn genetics, and sell genetics across Australia and Internationally.

The studs continue to be commercially driven, and focus on wool cut and quality while maintaining a large meaty frame.

We continue breeding balanced Merinos (horn & poll) which have the potency to be used in the stud and commercial Merino industry. Maintaining the wool and skin quality with true fibre density, alignment, nourishment and brightness with exceptional wool cut (quality & quantity) while enhancing early maturity, muscling, structure and fertility.

The result is a great Merino with very good wool, frame, fertility and constitution - and most importantly, very profitable - hence the many successes our clients are enjoying in state and national competitions.
