    Tattykeel Australian White Lamb is being touted as the Wagyu of the lamb industry.
    Our research proves it has naturally occurring intramuscular fat,
    a low fat melting point and is a source of Omega 3.


Tattykeel has a history of producing consistent quality, award winning meat sheep through improved genetics and breeding.

Graham and Martin Gilmore took their parents focus on quality a step further and intensified the line breeding principals used in the stud to further improve the quality and consistency of the sheep. Selective line breeding was also used by the family to enhance positive traits and reduce negative traits in the sheep, and Artificial Insemination and Embryo Transfer programs were introduced to maximise genetic gains.
  • Selective Line Breeding
    Resulting in improved the quality and consistency.
  • Artificial Insemination
    For controlled genetic improvement.
  • Embryo Transfer
    Introduced to maximise genetic gains.

Tattykeel Australian White lamb has been proven to have superior eating quality, with natural marbling of intramuscular fat, low fat melting points and is a natural source of Omega 3.


Tattykeel Poll Dorset’s are true to their breed type. They are moderate in size, packed with meat and genetically bred to finish on grass. Their genetics are Homozygous, so they throw consistent lambs when used as a terminal sire.

This has resulted in Tattykeel genetics being sort after by quality processors like Breakout River Meats Cowra, and the lambs being termed as “Tattykeel Type” at saleyards.



Tattykeel is the Birth Place of the Australian White Sheep Breed.

The Australian White was developed to be a self-replacing, haired, meat sheep that required minimal maintenance. The four breeds of sheep that were selected to develop the breed were chosen for specific traits they could bring to the breed. These breeds were the Poll Dorset, Texel, White Dorper and Van Rooy.

Graham, his brother Martin, and his sons James and Ross controlled the development of the breed through rigorous selection and breeding programs on the Tattykeel properties in Black Springs NSW.



The Tattykeel Angus Stud was founded in 2014 with it's first genetics sourced from Miller Wilson Angus 'DMM' in Canada.

Our main objective is to breed soft, easy doing animals that are able to finish on pasture. In order to achieve this we have focused on selecting animals that are structurally sound, with good confirmation, a moderate frame, good muscle pattern and carcass shape, we have also placed an emphasis on growth rates.





In response to the international demand for Tattykeel genetics, we have been exporting live animals, semen and embryos to North America, South America, the United Kingdom, Asia and South Sea Islands for over 25 years.

Tattykeel Global Pty Ltd can arrange the export of live animals and genetics around the globe.
