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.
Australian White sheep are suitable for a variety of environments and are adaptable to cold and hot climates. Their growth rate is repaid and they finish well on grass. They do not require shearing and negate the need to treat them for parasites. This is an easy care animal that is very profitable.
Since the breed was launched in 2011, the Tattykeel Team have continued to refine the breed. Continually selecting for improvement in the desired traits, conformation and eating quality. The breed is now being sought after all around the globe.
